	First check the compatibility list. In fact is you can print it out, 
bring it with you when you go looking at machines. Parallel printers 
generally work fine. The only thing a little confusing is having to set 
up your network control panel if you are connected to the net with 
high-speed. Otherwise your lpd doesn't work. I'm told dial-up machines 
are not as fussy.

	My Canon 4400 works fine. It picks up the colour commands with little 
effort. I have a switchbox and have an HP IIIp on the second setting. I 
haven't used it with 7.3 because I don't have the cash for another 
cartridge. Still, it worked great with 7.2.

	Is there anything specific you'd like to know?
