Printing to Laserjet 1320 via ethernet

Hi All,
I have a HP laserjet 1320 printer that i am currently printing to via parallel cable.
This printer only has USB and parallel ports, if i need to print via ethernet
do i need to use a HP Jetdirect print server? if yes can anyone recommend one
that is compatible with linux?

my current environment is Fedora core 3, Samba 3 on an Intel p4 machine.

Thanks in advance for your help

I'm using an HP JetDirect 170x to print ot a HP Photosmart P1215 from Xandros 3. Works fine.

The 170X connects to the printer through the parallel interface. There is another model that connects with a USB interface.

I got mine on Ebay for $13.00 (plus s and h).
