When I first picked up my iMac G5, it didn't occur to me that it wouldn't have a Parallel Port for my HP LaserJet 6P.
I did some googling and found a Parallel-USB Adapter. Will this work?
If so, the question becomes, which one do I buy? I've seen some generic ones for $14.99 on Tiger Direct, a $69 one from Belkin, and a $39 from Keyspan that talks about their proprietary Printer Configuration software.
Do I really need software?! It should just be plug 'n play, right?
Does anyone have experience using any of these and have a suggestion or two on 'em?

A close friend of mine and his wife owned a HP LaserJet 6P. They sold it without asking me first about drivers for OSX. I checked and the HP LaserJet 6P is there. So like James said, with the Parallel-USB Adapter it should work fine. I know James HP worked with it.
