There you have it: it's the "Samsung ML-2510" driver. ;-)
http://linuxprinting.org used to be the location of a large database of
which driver was needed for which printer in Linux. It now redirects to
something called OpenPrinting, and it says this:
Apparently the driver is distributed from the Samsung website.

I'm afraid I won't be able to answer your question fully, but at least I
can point you towards further documentation. Ubuntu uses CUPS (the
Common Unix Printing System) for managing printers, like most modern
Linux distros. I would hope that everything will just work; but if it
doesn't, you'll find documentation at http://www.cups.org/
Despite all appearances, your boss is a thinking, feeling, human being.
