Most Konica/Minolta copier/printers support PostScript printing.  If you
give me the model number of the printer, I can likely find the details you

  Subject: [K12OSN] MS box can't locate samba-ldap domain - dns issue?

  I just moved dhcp services for our main network to a fedora box running
dhcp (our Actiontec DSL modem used to do it). When I did this my single
Microsoft machine (win2k) that students used to print to our konica copier*
( with their samba/ldap authenticated logins) stopped letting them login.

  When I attempt to join my domain with the MS machine, the domain cannot be
located. It says I have a DNS problem. I have been reading up on that
actiontec and it seems that it did some DNS work.

  I have been very successful up to this point keeping my 4 K12LTSP servers
and 1 samba/ldap PDC running with a total of 40 clients without having a
solid understanding of linux microsoft/networking. Can anyone direct me to a
tutorial/reading/resource that will help a newbie at this get it working?

  *if you have any ideas about printing to PCL5/6 printers/copiers from
linux that would great too.. our linux machines lock up the copier's print
controller when they print directly to the copier.
