USB hp photosmart 1115
USB Kodax DX 3900
USB Cannon scanner

ohci0: <OHCI (generic) USB controller> mem 0xfe120000-0xfe120fff irq 3 at 
device 15.2 on pci0
usb0: OHCI version 1.0, legacy support
usb0: SMM does not respond, resetting
usb0: <OHCI (generic) USB controller> on ohci0
usb0: USB revision 1.0
uhub0: (0x1166) OHCI root hub, class 9/0, rev 1.00/1.00, addr 1
uhub0: 2 ports with 2 removable, self powered
ulpt0: hp photosmart 1115, rev 1.10/1.00, addr 2, iclass 7/1
ulpt0: using bi-directional mode

Scanner wan't plugged in during this boot, I'll get that info later.

These work on the same machine out-of-the-box on Win2k Server SP3
and Redhat Linux 9.0 (tri boot with FreeBSD)

What do I have to do to get them workin in FBSD.  

I'm most concerned with the printer...

Relevent kernel config ---
device          usb             # USB Bus (required
device          ulpt            # Printer
device          uscanner        # Scanners
device          ugen            # Generic
device          ukbd            # Keyboard
device          ohci            # OHCI PCI->USB interface  

I've read the freebsd handbook about the printers.... but I'm lost on it.
One of the very few sections left that don't make perfect sense.


Eventuall, I'll have a USB hub(expander) becase my keyboard and mouse are also 
USB (thats 5 total USB devices)... but for now there direct to the CPU.
