Have not configured a usb printer before and having some trouble,
partly from not having an understanding of how the process works.

I've gotten some info from these pages:

and tried various debian packages to help me set it up and run lpd...
I think this printcap file will work...

##PRINTTOOL3## LOCAL ljet4 600x600 letter {} BrotherHL-1250 Default {}

I normally use the parallel port and the debian lpr package to get a
functional "lp0" but doesn't seem so simple with usb...
