No luck w/ OfficeJet G85xi

You shouldn't be able to rename the printer in the Chooser. To do that, you'll need the specific utility for the printer, or perhaps a more generic one like the Apple LaserWriter Utility or the HP JetAdmin program.

And if you change *that* name with either of those utilities, that changes the name broadcast on your AppleTalk network, most definitely. Because that's what those utilities change.

It's much like changing the name broadcast by your computer when you turn on File Sharing -- you change that in the File Sharing control panel (OS 9) or the Sharing control panel (OS X).
