GDI-printer means basically that the printer runs a proprietary
protocol and no PCL, PS, etc..

If they say it is Linux-compatible there should be a Linux-driver for
it. AFAIK there are some CUPS-drivers for "GDI"-printers but you
better check this out at printing.kde.org under documentation. The
other question will be of course whether there is a CUPS for
OpenBSD - sorry, I don't know.
