Interesting thoughts David, thanks for your reply. 

The driver is included with Dell's software suite that makes all the bells and whistles work. I really would like the feature of scanning an image, and it send via WiFi over my network.

When I try installing the Dell printing software using WineBottler on Snow Leopard, the setup starts and says: 

"The Windows Spooler Service cannot be started. Installation of your printer cannot continue until you correct this problem."
