Gregory;

I have used HP OfficeJets of one kind or another since RH9, and they've
all worked. I am currently using a 7110 with FC3. For some reason, if
you select the hpoj package during installation, the libsane-hpoj
package doesn't get installed. So, check to see if you have libsane-hpoj
installed, and if not, install it. Then, open /etc/sane.d/dll.conf in a
text editor, scroll to the bottom, and uncomment the hpoj line. There
are directions at the bottom of the dll.conf file.

I'm assuming you've done the whole ptal-init setup thing to have your
device recognized already?
