Well a G4 or G5 would do the job well. It just has to act as an  
interface to the PowerPC PS plug-in. Powermac 7100 (PowerPC 601)  
running macos 9 would be the absolute low end for testing. All of the  
above are approaching free in value.

The connector on the printer is most likely a 50 pin centronics D. (I  
haven't studied the printer yet.) You select b/w SCSI 1 & 2 in the  
firmware setting on the unit.
