ethernet printer connect directly to mac

KASUMI used Ask the Experts™
I need to connect a Brother HL-1470N printer to an older mac (beige flat G3) using the ethernet port (it has no USB).  I was told this was possible without a hub, but it doesn't work. Will a crossover cable fix this?

Yes, if you dont have a hub you MUST have a crossover cable. You can get them from most computer stores.
