I'm right at the beginning here. Currently there's no printer set up at all, so I cannot print from the RH machine itself, so that's the first step, although to be honest I don't think I need to actually print locally, just share the printer(s) on the network.

I guess the question is would I be better off going with CUPS, or should I stick to LPR?

Snippets from my smb.conf

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

        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

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

A very simple question about printing, which is one thing I've never
had to set up before.

I want to offer print services to Windows and Mac (OSX) clients to a RH
8 server. Mainly I want to share an HP DeskJet 690c and I'm having
trouble figuring out the best method. I'm running SAMBA and Netatalk
and there's always LPR. But should I run CUPS and how does that
integrate into SAMBA and Netatalk?

I'm connecting the Deskjet via a parallel to USB converter and it seems
to be being seen, so it's a question of drivers. Will the recommended
HPIJS handle such a USB-parallel conversion?

Any understandable HOWTOs recommended?
