Can I make my non-wireless printer/scanner wireless?

I have a Samsung SCX-4500 (not W) laser printer/scanner, a Linksys WRT54GS v7.0 router, and a 13" MacBook Pro. Is there a way (using DD-WRT or something else) that I can print and scan over my wireless network?

How to control printing expenses in an open computer lab?

How can I limit printing quantities on a quasi-public networked printer? I run a small nonprofit computer center with 10 networked computers (8 XP, 2 OSX). I need to control ink & paper costs, but want people to be able to print free or low, low cost. When I was at Uni, we had a system where all users had to buy tokens at 5 cents a page. Is there an open source or low cost program that can help me do this? Even if my selling cost is zero, I want to track users and usage. [more inside]

Usernames in Windows domain (using Active Directory) and print server

We've got a bunch of users in a Windows domain (using Active Directory) who will be renamed to a letters-and-numbers parent-company username standard in about a week. Instead of using "jsmith" or "janedoe", they'll now be known as "ABC1234" etc. (not my decision, BTW).

Is there a way to make a table or username mapping on our print server so that things sent to networked printers (all running from a common printserver host) come out with a full name or recognizable name on the cover/banner page?
