Snow Leopard won't recognize my 6MP with parallel cable

I recently installed Snow Leopard and discovered that it does not support Apple Talk which I used to connect my old HP LaserJet 6MP. I purchased a 6 ft. parallel-USB cord and connected the printer to a USB port on the back of my Mac Pro. The 6MP did not show up when I went to print so I tried to add a printer and got a driver called "HP LaserJet 6MP - Gutenprint v5.2.3." Now "Prolific Technologies Inc. IEEE-1284 controller" shows up in my list of printers but when I try to print the window says "printer offline." I tried a "Restart" but? that did not help. Do I have a cable problem or driver problem?
