Absolutely. You can use AppleTalk connectors. The HP 4M printer should support the AppleTalk connection, so just use AppleTalk connectors on the printer and each computer, and connect the computers straght to the printer (each AppleTalk connector has two plugs).

If you do connect using AppleTalk, be aware that your connection will be slower than Ethernet, but at least it will work.

All you need is a piece of software from Apple called "LaserWriter Bridge 2.0". this will enable one of the computers to accept print jobs fom other computers through a phone-net connection.
