Re: [K12OSN] School printer server



Yes sure, K12LTSP 6.0 was based on Fedora Core, and one part  of the
installation stages you can choose to install which type of installation
(server, workstation etc), and can be configured
as printservers (cups) and fileservers (samba) and much more.

I suggest you can start by picking up a good book on the topic.

Thanks.  So basically I can install the K12LTSP on a machine and use it just
for the CUPS function without the terminal services part.
(Sorry, maybe not a bright question) but I assume I can also use it as a
file server to host the files for my unattended Windoze installs?  I'm use
to using a DOS network boot disk to connect to the current Windoze server on
which the unattended installs reside.  Is the connection process (we can't
use PXE) basically the same?
Thanks,
Jeremy

take a look at CUPS (Common Unix Printing System), it should be
already on K12LTSP,
it has quotas and logging feature you wanted.
