If you got a seperate Jetdirect 300 box (about $200-$300) you could attach the printer that way also.

If/when you do get this up and running though, I would draw your attention to the problem I am having with manual duplexing. I have found that manual duplexing works OK with the PC to which the printer is directly connected, but manual duplexing does not work on any machines connected via the share.
If you could confirm/deny that this is the case in your network, this would greatly help my problem diagnosis too.

The short answers to your two questions are yes and no.
Here are a couple links you might find helpful:
As you can see from reading the HP documentation, the LJ1012 is a 'host-based LJ.' So the LJ1012 cannot use any kind of JetDirect (internal or external). Here is a link that spells this limitation out. (The LJ1012 is part of the LJ1000 series.)
What the HP rep should have said was, 'the LJ1012 does not support networking through JetDirect print servers.'
As others have mentioned, the LJ1012 can indeed be Shared through MS networking, but it can only be connected to the host PC with a USB cable.
Printer Sharing through MS networking is a specific type of networking.
Please post back if you still have questions.
