you're far better off trying a newer distribution. i recommend ubuntu.

without details on what you tried to "install" the printer, no one can really help you.

Three years back HP 1000 was not working [ made it print in round about way - call it jugaar ] on RH9, I doubt if it will work now. With newer distro's things could be different but do ask around first. This particular model is sort of win Printer like win modem, not meant to work with either unix / linux. With current prices if you have option then replace it else use some newer distro.

Dear Saqib Malik
Assalamo-Alaikum

i think you did not read out the link properly. please re-read it if possible.

use only foo2zjs (zjstream drivers for hp laserjet 1000)

download the foo2zjs.tar.gz from net untar it compile with make.

i think you miss to download following, provide internet facility to your system so that 1000 firmware file should be downloaded.

$ ./getweb 1000 # Get HP LaserJet 1000 firmware file
# make install
# make cups
restart the cups (last command will restart your cups automatically. )
----------------------------------------
if you have done upper portion correctly

install the printer GUI mode and if you do not know follow the brief instructions below.
than open web browser and open this URL
1. http://localhost:631
2. select printer
3. add printer
4. give any name to printer
5. select the device port or host
6. select socket
7. select printer type (choose exact printer) (foomatic printer must be there under HP or Hawlet Packard)
now your pinter is installed and is ready for use.

better if you can upgrade your distro, ubuntu 6.10 or 6.06 as lambda mentioned earlier. there is built-in hplip, thousands of printer's drivers available with this distro.
