HP Laserjet 1100, extremely slow printing...

I have the HP Laserjet 1100A (with the scanner component on the front). 
I've used this printer for years, and it's incredibly fast under
Windows.  Since I've switch to Ubuntu a few weeks ago, I've been really
frustrated by the very long time it takes just to print one or two
pages.  I've also noticed that after I've printed a few documents, that
the printer stops printing altogether (this never happened under windows
previously, believe it or not).  I have to unplug the power cord on the
printer and plug it back in again in order to get the printing to start
up again.  This is definitely a Ubuntu or driver issue, as I've never
had these kinds of problems previously.

Can this problem be fixed??  Is there another driver option that might
work better?  Can any settings be changed to help this (I'm very new to
Ubuntu - and Linux in general - so I've no idea what to try changing).
