I don't know if it helps, but my printer is a samsung ML-1250 with usb cable; it works fine with DSL 2.4 and the apsfilter script, using one of the driver of hp (the lj5mono); by the way, it also works with the pxlmono, and your printer can also use this last one. So, it should be recognized and installed.
The issue with your usb: try to plug your usb printer after dsl has been completely loaded. Then use the apsfilter in order to configure and install your printer; it should find somthg at /dev. If not, you have a problem with the cable of your printer or with your usb. If you have a laptop, the problem can be that the usb of your laptop does not allow electricity enough in order to managed the usb-printer. I have this last issue not with a printer, but with a 80 Gigabite USB-HD, which I can't use plugged in my laptop. I also make DSL hanging during the boot process.
