Is close good enough when it comes to printers?

I am printing from the iSeries via Client Access on a printer on my PC. My new printer model is not in the list of printers in Client Access setup. How can I add this new model on the list to be able to print?
The list of available printers is release-dependent, but you can not add more printers to it. However, in my experience, printers from the same family will print close enough iSeries spool files (these are almost always simple text files). That is choose a "close" printer (i.e. hp690 instead of hp670.)
