With no PC software, I haven't even tried.

Multi-protocol support. A good HP board can be talked to by Windows
(LAN Damager^H^H^H^H^H^HManager protocol), UNIX and Mac. Since I have
all of the above in my house, I want to point a stream of bits at the
printer and have spotted paper shoot out the other end.

The external box I have is nice, but it only has one port and I want to
put an inkjet printer on that. I feel that since the LaserJet can take
an internal card, I should use it and free the smart resource for a dumber

As far as I know, the JetLAN board _is_ Novell. I do not want to run
a Novell server with print-spooler just to be able to print.
