Yes I did. This wasn't all that was needed though. It turns out that the
same hplip driver package I installed to get SANE to recognize the
scanner also _does_ enable Fax support!

For some reason (and to my surprise), the HP Fax driver didn't show up
as an option with the printer configuration utility
(system-config-printer) until _after_ I rebooted - which I did for
something completely unrelated.

After it showed up - yes I did! Looks like everything is working now.

So, the final solution:
1) Install all of the HP oriented SANE tools (libsane-hpaio, etc.)
2) Install the hplip package
3) Reboot (??? Don't know why I should have to, but it worked...)
4) Configure printer and fax as normal

Cheers,

Chris
