I had the same problem with my printer. I have a Lexmark
4037 5e. Fortunately, most companies make their printers
to emulate HP's "PCL" language. I contacted Lexmark
and got the escape sequences to switch the printer into
PCL mode. I just wrote a small C program(about 5 lines)
to send the escape sequences and put the program
in "/etc/profile". Since I have my computer dual booted
with Win95, I also had to write the same type of program
to change the printer to native "PPDS" mode. That was
placed in my "AUTOEXEC.BAT".
Then, I just set the printer type to "HP Laserjet" in Linux.
I just looked at a "FAQ" on Epson's FTP site
and it says that the Action Laser can emulate the HP LJ III.

You may want to have more than 512KB of buffer memory for
printing stuff with Ghostscript. My printer has 2.5MB,
If you are planning on using it with Linux only, you should
able to set it permanently into "HP PCL 5" emulation mode.
if your computer is "dual booted", you will want this done
It will probably be a challenge to get the escape sequences
