    So, I just connected my HP Deskjet 630C to my eMac with a USB adapter. Now... How do I get it to work?

    I assume you have installed the drivers from the install disk? Every HP printer I have used with a mac I have had to download the drivers from the HP website because the ones on the install disk would not work.

    Oh... I didn't realize the whole "It just works" thing doesn't apply to printers. Ok, I'll check out HP's website. Thanks for the help.

    The only operating systems they had listed were various versions of Windows. Does that mean I'm SOL?

    No, maybe not - search for 'gutenprint' - It's an open source set of drivers for almost any printer ever made - of course saying that means that the 630c isn't one of them...
