Mac Printers

I just got a new Powermac G4, and was wondering if I could use my Lexmark X73 or HP PSC 500 printers with it? Is there a special hookup I need? Software? Are they even compatible?

If they are USB, they will probably work. I hd a great HP printer a while back and wanted to use it. I had an Assante connector and it worked for a while, but eventually it stopped working - something about the connection.

Too much trouble so I got a new HP - color laser, not too expensive, about $599.
