There are no Server 2008 drivers available but try it with 2003 and see what limitations there are, if any.

The first link doesn't have 2008 server.  

@integrityoffice, when I unzip the files from the link you gave it really doesn't give me a Universal driver, but lots of other choices.  Do you know which other HP model I could select to run this printer?

jrsitman,

I'm saying try the 2003 drivers.  In my experience it has worked in the past.

For 2008 I would prefer to use Vista drivers as 2008 is Vista based and 2003 is XP. Get them from:

There is a download button on the link above for x64

I know a client of mine has used this on quite a few x64 W2008 servers now.

Here is the 32 bit one.

Personnaly I really do not like those printers and I really dislike the driver installer for them on my servers hence my usage of the above universal driver. I have a client with a few 1022n (urgh)
