	      Use the 'lsusb' command to obtain this information.

       IPs (network only):

       DEVNODE (parallel only):
	      "/dev/parportX", X=0,1,2,...

       Parallel, automatic, no testpage:
	      $ hp-setup -i -a -x /dev/parport0

       Parallel, choose device:
	      $ hp-setup -i -b par

       1. If no serial number, USB ID, IP, or device node  is  specified,  the
       USB and parallel busses will be probed for devices.

       2. Using 'lsusb' to obtain USB IDs: (example)

	  $ lsusb

		Bus 003 Device 011: ID 03f0:c202 Hewlett-Packard

	  $ hp-setup --auto 003:011

	   (Note:  You may have to run 'lsusb' from /sbin or another location.
       Use '$ locate lsusb' to determine this.)
