Not a Belkin, and may not be the same chip or driver, but I'm using one
of these:
with my HP LaserJet 5MP. I plugged it in, turned the printer on, clicked
"Add Printer" in system-config-printer, and everything "just worked".

If you want to know what's in any of my config files or log files, let
me know what you want and I'll post it.
