Thanks to the following people that responded:
Sun System Admin <>
Tim Evans <>
Matthew Stier <> (Trey Valenta)
Systems Admin <>
Richard Skelton <>

The responses ranged from 'It doesn't work here' to 'It's working fine
for me'. Richard Skelton suggested the latest version of the JetAdmin
software, available at:

What I ended up doing was to upgrade a non-critical workstation and
install the latest version of the JetAdmin software on it. I then
set it up to manage one of the lower traffic HP laser printers in the
office. The only problem I had was that setting a printer up as the
default printer from within the Jet Admin software doesn't work due to
a bug in the script. This is easily worked around with the lpadmin -d
<printer> command. Other than that, it appears to work fine.
