it depends on the printer. some models are supported by your mac and some are not. my office has 1 that is and 1 that will not work.
first thing to try is to go to system preferences> print and fax> try to add a printer and see if it shows up. hopefully it does and you are ready to go.
if it doesnt you can google the model with the word "mac" to see if it has drivers available for your mac. then have the printer print a network settings page and see what the ip address is and try to add it manually. if it then finds it you can tell the mac to use the drivers you downloaded.
good luck"i believe louisiana is the pelican state"
