LaserJet 5L on a wireless Mac network

I found these directions to be immensely helpful with setting up my HP LaserJet 5L on my Intel iMac when I switched the iMac over to wireless last Spring.  Replace “ethernet port on another computer” with “ethernet port on Netgear Print Server”.  The print server defaults to DHCP, and I printed out a test page from the print server to find out what IP was associated with it.  I also used a cross-over cable instead of a plain ethernet cable.  Setting up the printer is left for another post.  (and before you ask why didn’t I just plug the print server into a hard wired jack, it was because there wasn’t one handy)
