Configuring printing is an administrative task, it has security
implications, therefor ordinary users are restricted somewhat.

Using what's already configured, is another matter.  i.e. Printing, or
picking page preferences per user, etc.

Unless a client has been deliberately firewalled off to prevent
printing, it ought to work without further effort on their behalf.

(Currently running FC4, occasionally trying FC5.)

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
