photo printers

i need to buy a printer to print photos from a digital camera.

i have about 150 to spend, and have no preference to brand or whatever. doesnt matter about scanner, copier etc... either.
an ethernet port would be great though. but not nessecary.

any suggestions?
im baffeled by the amount of choice and features they seem to have so any pointers in the right (or wrong) direction would be super.


edit : it doesnt HAVE to run in linux :>

I've just bought an HP Photosmart 7660, it works really well on Linux (don't use Wndows but I assume it would work well) and it's priced as 149.99 but currently going for 74.99 in Argos.
