Should work either way.

I gave up on inkjet printers.  If you only do black and white printing 
there are cheap laser printers that you just plug into your newtwork and 
go:

I used an inkjet printer for heavy printing for about a year once.  I 
bought one of those black ink refill kits with a pint of black ink off 
of ebay for like $20.  I thought I was really going to stick it to the 
man but after about 700 pages and refilling the cartridge about 4 times 
it stopped working completely.  So I was faced with buy another 
cartridge or put my money in something better....
