Same problem with me: the older - but very good - HP 2100 b/w with Apple Talk doesn't work in my network. Saw also the routine and tips on the HP side, but didn't work for me.
Just strange: when opening my notebook - also Snow leopard: there he recognises the printer and open up for the whole network. So, when my laptop is at work, the printer works on all other machines too. When i close it down: finito....
So i tried to import the settings from the lap to my desktop-machine and some others with ip-adress, but had no luck till now.
