Are you saying that you were able to print to your Lexmark laser printers by
more or less following these steps:

1. buy a computer, install gentoo

2. buy a lexmark mono or laser printer, plug it into computer via usb

3. emerge net-print/cups

4. Do something with "standard postscript drivers" (??? please
elaborate on this)

5. Visit the local cups webpage, add new printer, select "lexmark"

6. print

Notably absent from this list:
PCL, IPP, foomatic, hplip, ppds, binary, drivers, manufacturer website
visits, etc

Thank you!
