ok no printers of my own to test anything so your going to have to do most of the work yourself and report back what's happening.
from my understanding your going to need the hplip driver for hp printers, these may or may not already be built into the distro.
before going there tho, lets see if puppy can find and setup your printer by itself.
run the livecd and setup the internet connection first as usual, i'd also not put the x in the firewall option so the firewall doesn't start, it may interfere with setting up the printer, you can always start it later when we know printing works.
now on the main welcome page at the bottom you will see a setup icon click on it.
in the new window near the top you will see a number of tabs, click on the hardware tab.
now you will see a list of different hardware you can setup, click on the printer
now things are in your hands, there are 2 options i can see install and manage, try them and see if your printer is found and can now print.
take good notes especially of any errors or missing dependencies and report back your results.
this link should help you to install your printer. :- http://murga-linux.c...pic.php?t=59015
i don't think the puppy live cd has hplip so you may need this link where you can download and install hplip from :- http://hplipopensour.../downloads.html
good luck and let us know how your getting on.
don't forget, because you are running puppy as a live cd with no persistent file system, you are going to have to go through this process every single time you run the puppy live cd and want to print something.
