we've seen a related problem with that HP printer and MicroSoft XP-Pro
(running on a Sun W2100Z workstation).   in our case the duplex setting
sticks ok, but on printing PDF pages, the driver defaults to PostScript
level 3 and you have to set it to level 2 everytime you print (and it
has to be the last thing just before sending the print job).    very

but love the CLJ4500N (and the CLJ8500N for which there is only a beta
MicroSoft driver).   had the same experience you did, that they just
work from unix.
