Is it possible to get the HP722C inkjet to work under Linux?  I did notice somewhere that it said it is a windows95 printer.

I'm afraid it's not supported... Common filters use ghostscript to print, and it doesn't support it. Have a look at ftp://ftp.pdb.sni.de/pub/utilities/misc/hpdj.html

Yes, it is possible to use HP720 series printers with Linux, thanks to Tim Normat. You have to download the PBM to PPA converter from www.rpi.edu/~normat/technical/ppa
Read the README and INSTALL files. The README.REDHAT even allows to add this printer to the control-panel.
This only prints in B&W and postscript files. But you can always convert ASCII files to postscript!
Good luck!
