	I have recently got Suse 11.1 up and running on new hardware - with more than a little 
help from my friends - but have been unable to get it to work with my Fujitsu DL1150 
printer.  Advice received was that I should browse to http://localhost:631 and follow 
instructions therein.  I did so but what I got was a screenful of html code - apparently 
what I found there was being displayed rather than rendered.  However I did a copy paste 
of that code and saved it in my temp directory with a .htm suffix and then opened it 
successfully from there - i.e. it did display as graphics, the html code having been duly 
converted.  But that was no use of itself because it was missing a large number of links 
which had presumably been left behind in 'localhost'. Seems to me the solution would be 
to go back there, add a .htm suffix to whatever I find and then run it from there - but 
could anyone tell me where to find 'there' please?
