Prior to attempting to us my OfficeJet for scanning, I installed it as a
printer using the System/Administration/Printing setup application.

Through this process, Fedora 9 recognized my printer.

Following the information, I checked to see that hplip was installed and
found that it was.  I included the graphical front end.  After
installing the graphical front end, the installation asked if I wish to
run the program.  I answered yes and it responded saying that it was
unable to find any devices the subsequently crashed.
