Once I found the new jetadmin for solaris (SOLe118.PKG, aka /opt/hpnpl) and
installed this, I also needed to install net_ljx000 which is accessed by
jetadmin and adds the specific options for that series of printers.

Only once this is done will the -o switch in lp accept other trays. BTW, 
this can be hotwired to some extent by adding the keyword, "Solaris"
to the stanza for the printer within /etc/printers.conf
