The short answer is no, It's time to upgrade.

This printer, while an excellent printer, was first produced in 1994. Back then in the golden years of Apple, everyone used System 6, or 7 and serial, or ethernet based appletalk.

If you wish to use this printer, you will need to configure it to use TCP/IP over Ethernet and not appletalk.

The SCSI port was for a Font cache HD, not for connecting to a computer, this printer came with a Parallel port to connect to a PC.

As far as a OS-X driver is concerned, you might be SOL, but than again, I'm not a UNIX user.
