HP Laserjet 4000 & TCP/IP?

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I have a pal who has a HP 4000 printer. She used to print to it via Appletalk with an old iMac in OS 9.

Now she has a new iMac, OS X, and she is on a SOHO LAN with a Windows XP PC and an iBook (also in X). She has a cable modem with a Linksys router. The router is dishing-out local DHCP addresses (NAT).

Question: Can the HP LJ 4000 be configured to receive an IP address via DHCP address from the linksys router like the computers do? I see an option for TCP/IP in the LCD config panel, but it only has has one option: BootP. Any ideas?

Our goal is to turn off AppleTalk, and turn on print sharing so she can provide print services to the Windows XP box. RIght now only the Macs can see the HP (via AppleTalk)

Does HP make a LaserJet utility app for OS X yet?
