Our local Tandy store is currently selling Lexmark Z25 printers at
bargain prices.  Their story is that a new model will shortly be

The Z25 brochure claims that the printer works with RedHat 7.0 or higher
provided the driver (available at the Lexmark website) is installed.

The driver - which I have yet to download successfully - says that it
needs Ghostscript 6.05 and enscript. And my recently-updated
Ghostscript-7.05 has problems finding its fonts. When I set the
$GS_LIB path so that Ghostscript-7.05 works, neither enscript nor
a2ps can find the fonts that they need; and when I leave $GS_LIB at
its default setting, enscript and a2ps work but Ghostscript-7.05
cannot run the supplied test files that contain fonts.

Anything else that I need to know before I jump at the Tandy bargain?
