Okay, well, then, as now, I deleted everything that was not relevant to my post.
Perhpas you are receiving the list in digest and receieiving everyone else's posts
simultaneously.  I can assusre that I am deleeting everything here not related to 
this particular post.  I have not control over whatever else you receive.

This is the K12OS redhat com list, as the headers on these messages clearly indicate. 
I will continue to post issues related to the K12OS to this list.
I hardly think issues that a newbie is having with this particular operating
system are any less relevant than discussion of the Children's Internet Protection
Act or any other number of things I have seen discussed here, including Windows related issues and more.

I am using a web-based mail server and have no control over text wrapping on your machine.

Really, you say you want to help move OSS into school but when TEACHER and LIBRARY PROFESSOINAL comes on with difficulties you treat him terribly.  Perhaps you should rethink your position. (Please note, this comment applies to Hans, alone, most of you have been very helpful, indeed).

NOW, about the printer...
Well, I needed an ink cartridge so rather than spend another $50 on a cartridge for a printer that has been giving me headaches, I spent $70 for a new printer, a Lexmark z33.
I have downloaded and installed the driver, as well as enscript-1.6.1 which I located at rpmfind, since a dependency was indicated.
the driver installed fine.
When I tried to print a test page I got another Localhost bad msg.
This is getting tiring.
I did a stack trace and got this:

Get_local_host: hostname "localhost" bad
while executing
"exec lpr- P$printqueu $installpath/$testpagefile
invoked from within
".top21.can24.can27.but37 invoke"
<"uplevel" bod line 1)
invoked fromwithin
"uplevel #0 [list $w invoke]"
(procedure "tkbuttonUp" line 7)
invoked from within
"tkbuttonUp .top21.can24.can27.but37

command bound to event

When I try to print from OpenOffice.org I get nothing, now, not even the old localhost bad msg.

Does this help troubleshoot the issue?
I thought I was onto something with someone, but I did'nt get a response from my last post (well, not a helpful one, just Hans' moaning.)

Please assist.
