Minolta 1250W won't connect to print server

I just purchased this nice little 17ppm, 8mb, 1200x1200 laser printer for $200 and I'd like to connect it to my HP JetDirect 170x print server in order to share it. The print server is hung off a Linksys 4-port router in a small home network. The printer, however, does not seem to recognize the print server at all and Minolta support is clueless about the problem other than to assure me that this product has been successfully connected to a print server. It prints fine when connect to my Win 2000 box via parallel or USB but won't even print the print server's test page when connected to that device.

Has anyone out there been able to get this printer to work with a print server and if so what did you have to do to get it to work?
