Hi Nick,
I did write might rather than definitely. I'm just a home user and Linux 
enthusiast, but I do remember quite a few years ago when Samba worked 
for me in a similar situation when CUPS would not. The printer I was 
using was an HP 895 so maybe not completely comparable to your 
JetDirect. As John Winters rightly points out "this is much
messier than the CUPS setup", but also quite satisfying when you get it 
to work.
