How to make OS X Beta print to a USB printer System
This one goes in the "very experimental" category. xappeal.org has published a method of getting some HP USB printers to work under OS X PB.

You'll need to register (for free) as an Apple developer to download a package, but it looks pretty straightforward after that.

When you go to download the Tioga SDK
it tells you which printers will work. Not
sure why this has been so complicated
for people to figure out (everywhere I've
seen this tip posted).

From the Apple developer site:

"The Tioga SDK allows developers to
build a sample Tioga Printer Module (PM)
and print to an HP DeskJet 800- or
900-series printer
."

Thanks for clarifying! I've edited the hint to reflect the additional information.

Not having a USB printer, I hadn't headed over to the web page yet.
