Need Help setting up Laser and Inkjet Printers

I have two pretty incompatible printers... HP Laserjet 1020 and the Lexmark Z715...

I am aware that some progress is being made on the Laserjet 1020 driver from but there is absolutely no information regarding it's completion on the driver's website

As for the Lexmark... my biggest problem is understanding the naming scheme they use on how the hell am I supposed to know what type of model my printer is according to their naming scheme? I have a Lexmark Z715 printer but I have no idea which one that reffers to. More than likely it's incompatible anyways, but I would at east like to know how the drivers are progressing, and it's hard to know when I cant even find my printer in the database

I would really appreciate it if someone could give me a heads up on any Laserjet 1020 driver status, and if they could show me which printer on my Lexmark Z715 reffers to
