I think this is a Win9X problem, check the  client and remote print server
(I would think these are all are Win9x PC) printer setups, ... START,
SETTINGS, PRINTERS, select your printer then right click to get context
menu, select PROPERTIES, select DETAILS tab, SPOOL SETTINGS, then select

    From the client this should send to the Linux server, the Linux server
LPD (or LPRng, which I believe is better for control and other benefits)
should then send to remote print server ... This should all be a little
quicker ... I think, I have not tested myself, but this all might just see
like a lot of work for a small benefit.
