Yes, assuming you have the ports on the linux box to use those printers
and the drivers are available! If you can plug them in/print from Linux,
you can share them with Samba.
I have not had bad luck with those little boxes for doing printing
either, but like most cheapy consumer gear, they seem to flake out about
18 months of age, and you have to buy new ones. Unlike the 12+ year old
jet direct card I just pulled from an HP4si. It had a thin net port on
the back, and an AUI going to twisted pair. Wow...
