I'm not sure about RHEL but on my distro HP printers use a package called hplip.  You may want to see if you can install that.

Topic Moved to Printing Support Section.

Now regarding question, HP provide drivers for linux and RHEL 5 is supported properly.
Just go here and provide information : http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/install_wizard/index.html

yum -y install gcc*

Step 1:- Execute Following Command
wget -O foo2zjs.tar.gz http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/foo2zjs.tar.gz
This command will download Driver

Step 2 :- Unpack the downloaded Drivers.Execute Following Commands
tar zxvf foo2zjs.tar.gz
cd foo2zjs


Step 3:- Now Compile Drivers & Install Drivers (GCC Packages need here now)
[root@ask4itsolutions.com~]# make
[root@ask4itsolutions.com~]# make install
[root@ask4itsolutions.com~]# make install-hotplug (this command will detect your USB printer)

When you finished this then follow below steps :-

Execute system-config-printer command
Find your Printer and Install it.
