Unfortunately, updated 10.6 drivers for the HP LaserJet P1005 and P1006 printers are not yet available. HP did a nice job supporting most HP models in 10.6 but a few printers are still a work in progress. We'll post update news here asap.
thanks for your patience,

I had a similar experience. I spent 25 minutes on the phone with tech support for 10.6 with the P1006. The HP Tech was unaware that OS X 10.6 was out, or any different than previous OS X versions. The tech was adamant that the current driver should handle any version of OS X 10. It was a very frustrating half hour. HP was not aware of any compatibility issues with OS X 10.6 and any of their Laserjet printer. This didn,t leave me with any faith that the P1006 will be getting a Snow Leopard driver. I like my P1006, but since I cannot get confirmation that a driver is being worked on and an ETA, I have started shoping for another brand laser. I will be ditching HP if I cannot get an answer by next week.

Snow leopard removed the printer from my preferences on this computer, which is connected to the P1006 via USB.
To get it back, I did the following:
1) Downloaded the Mac OX X Drivers from the HP site.
2) Installed these drivers.
3) Let the driver installation software add the printer back.
I have been able to print from this machine (Mac Pro), which is connected to the printer via USB.
On another computer (MacBook Pro). I reinstalled the HP Mac Drivers, removed the printer, then added it back. Printing to the P1006 now works from that computer, too.
Hope that this helps others.
