Re: printing



Ken,

	Have you been able to print from your RH8 box?   If so just share it
via Samba.

Snippets from my smb.conf

        printcap name = /etc/printcap
        load printers = yes
        printing = cups

[printers]
        comment = All Printers
        path = /var/spool/samba
        browseable = no
# Set public = yes to allow user 'guest account' to print
        printable = yes


There's a good book too if your a windows admin that is moving to
linux.  I think it's called the Windows administrator's guide to samba
or something close to that.

It walks you through setting up shares and printers using webmin, and
swat.

Either way, if you can print from your RH8 machine, your half way there.
