My printer is a Fuji Xerox DocuPrint C525A.  You have to get the Linux driver 
from the supplier, but it works without problems for me.
I am using it from Kubuntu 7.04 and Slackware 12 now, and have used it from 
Arch and Slackware 11.
My reason for choosing it instead of a Samsung is that the user manual tells 
you how to overcome the demand from the printer cartridge chips to change 
cartridge.  Toner is expensive for all colour lasers!
