    check the hp website to see if the printer is supported under os x...

    ...if that doesn't work, get Gimp Print from versiontracker

    the dl the drivers. install them. log out and back in (for good measure) and then go to /Applications/Utilities/ and run print center.

    if it isnt there call hp and ask for help. if it is make it the default.

    gimp-print is a management system for printer drivers (like print center on CUPS) used in most nix's including but not exclusively linux. dont worry, it is a bit advanced for most people as it is fairly much a terminal affair.

    good luck
