Linux compatible printer

Can somebody suggest a good Laser printer which works without any problems with Linux?
A network printer would be better. I have one but it uses berkley print queues and I couldn't get it print from my linux workstation.

The Samsung ML-4500 works an absolute treat!

Be warned, however, that the 'drivers' on the setup CD are tailored towards a fairly old RH distro, so you may need to fiddle to get it up and running nicely. Not too complicated, though.

I used to have an old HP-LaserJet IIIp which worked ok, so long as you didn't send too much to it at once (printer problem, not os).
