I didn't mean begging as in money, more in respect of advice.

I tell you now its not gonna happen. to keep that printer you will need a 
Windows box, a print server only serves the printer with an IP address you'll 
have to have a DHCP server that can translate the address and service for all 
the clients.

If you go down the path of a Micro box that's gonna take up more room than a 
laptop maybe not in width and depth but certainly in height which strangely 
is normally the clincher that's why a lot of people use desktops with the 
monitor plonked on top because they don't have room for towers even mini
