One note: some Brother printers don't work without a binary-only driver
downloaded from Brother (that is 32-bit only).
If you want to look at Fedora compatibility out-of-the-box, pull up the
"add new printer" dialog and look at the list. IIRC you can tell it you
are installing a printer on a parallel port or something like that to
get it to let you to the "select a make/model" phase.

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
