Meanwhile, the hal mailing list is often a good place to go for
tips about smacking hal around. Maybe some sort of
file in /etc/hal/fdi/policy/ could be used to make it stop
auto configuring that printer, then you could just configure
it manually (they helped me figure out how to make hal
ignore a usb drive I didn't want automounted, so maybe
it can ignore printers too).
