	I know and in theory (some people have apparently managed it) you
can install the Brother drivers, including the critical Linux binary that
takes a pnm from ghostscript and sends it to the printer, in the right
places to make it work and all the config that tells CUPS how to use it. I
spent a week or so trying to make it work before taking the path of least
resistance and installing something the Brother installer could cope with.
