Apple "In twenty odd years of working with computers, I never owned an Apple computer. Frankly, until OSX, I was never interested. But the BSD underpinnings of OSX got my attention. The Mac finally got a "real" operating system. It was interesting enough that several years after it debuted, I purchased my first Apple computer on eBay, a Mac Mini, to dig a little deeper into the OS. Not only did Apple do something right with OSX, but it was smart marketing to introduce a cheap Mac that worked with PC hardware. It is squarely aimed at Windows switchers and the mildly curious like myself. I would never have considered springing for a full-blown iMac or iBook as a learning exercise, but a used Mini fit the budget."

a Samsung ML-1710 laser printer, and an HP Deskjet 932C
You need to install driver for Samsung ML-1710, here is the website:

As for the HP printer, you can visit this site:
to download the OS X driver.

Now, Apple includes 1GB of printer driver with the Panther installation disc and it probably includes a driver for Deskjet 932C. Installing that package will *probably* allow OS X to automatically configure the printer for you, but I tend to think it's a waste of HD space.
