    Services standard on HPUX aren't always included. Start with
    the HP web site. They do support Linux.
     

    A better choice if the printer can be configured to use DHCP.
    I suspect sufficiently old models only support bootp.

    The dhcp protocol is a direct extension of the bootp protocol and
    dhcp server will in most cases support bootp client. Redhat system
    comes with ICS dhcpd and the man page for dhcpd.conf tells you how
    to create the configuration file for bootp clients.
