I don't need Magenta to print black text!

My HP deskjet 8000's printer drivers won't allow me to print at all when 1 color of ink is out. Yes, even if I only want to print in black and white. Aside from going back and time and telling me not to buy this POS, can you help me? Are there hacked drivers?

I'm open to any kinds of hacks you have in mind. Physical hacks? How does it know when ink is low and can I fool it?
A solution for a Mac running Snow Leopard would be preferred, but we've also got Windows 7 and Ubuntu computers to choose from.
