Thank you very much it's an "elcheapo", looking at this as a replacement for
a Lexmark Multifunction Printer, Scanner, Fax that is not at all supported
(Game Special). I have a Canon i455 seems to be better supported under 8.04
than 8.10.
HP also found to be very well supported. Lexmark is a disaster althou with
some help on the web I got my X1100 working under 8.10, I could normally use
the scanner with xsane but no printing.

Can anyone recommend a Printer, scanner, fax (Multipurpose Printer)
available in SA, not too expensive that will work out the box? Not too
worried about the fax.

I'm not sure about this printer but in my experience HP works the best 
under Linux. Stay away from Canon. To see what is supported go to
