AW: Better printing (driver handling) docs ?

Hi Ken,

HP-UX uses -1,-2 UID and GID in /etc/passwd and /etc/group. I work around
this by changing the entries to 65535 and 65534 (signed vs. unsigned).
I don't know if this has any bad influence. Anyone comments?

Kind regards,

OS = HP-UX 10.20 .... latest (as of this morning) CVS bits for SAMBA_2_2

I still don't get anything in the printers folder when I browse and I get
messages in the log.smbd like 

[2001/10/17 10:07:54, 0, pid=3103, effective(0, 1), real(0, 0)]
  Failed to set uid privileges to (-1,-2) now set to (0,0)
[2001/10/17 10:07:54, 0, pid=3103, effective(0, 1), real(0, 0)]
  PANIC: failed to set uid

Pointers/help appreciated ....
