I am very aggravated. I buy a brand new Imac, love it, and the new airport extreme network and then find out that my printer is not compatible with Airport. Why must I buy a new printer every time I upgrade to a new machine? I already have 4 printers that are barely used because of compatibility issues. Anyone else with the same problem or am I all wet?

There are ways around this. They Airport base station functions as an HP jet direct server. Just because it's not supported out of the box doesn't mean it won't work. Try posting this in the peripheral forum, as this has absolutely nothing at all to do with the fact that you have a Power Mac vs. an iBook.

You could also search google.

Some folks over at Apple's Discussion Forums say they are using the 952c with AirPort Extreme and having no problems. Seems the key is going to HP's web site and downloading all the latest drivers. Then it seems to work with OS X 10.3 even though it's not on the printer compatibility list.

To see the discussions go to Apple.com > Support > Discussions > AirPort Extreme and search for 952c. Somebody there pointed out this article and claimed success with his HP 952c. Might be worth a look.
