I have written a Draft for the new Printing Chapter of the Samba-3.0
HOWTO-Collection. It is available at

A PDF version (for convenient printing) is at

The Samba 3.0 HOWTO-Collection is due for release alongside the Samba
3.0 software release, probably sometime in May/June. The complete
collection of docus in all its draft components is already greatly
enhanced and extended, and so is the printing part. Please help
further polish it.

Please: read it - use it - test its advices & recipes - feed your
suggestions back to me. This way you can make the Samba Printing
Documentation a better one. (You may also learn a bit from it at no
cost at all... ;-)

The most recent PDF version of the complete HOWTO Collection is
(until final release) available at

(Note that this does not yet include my Samba Printing HOWTO part
I am asking you to check and test.)

The printing draft contains 15 ASCII art flowcharts trying to to
clarify and explain various aspects of Windows --> Samba printing
and of CUPS printfile processing. However, I am not able to convert
this into something "nice". So here goes the call to all who are
willing and able to help out with their abilities to use one of the
Free Software drawing or graphic programs: Please provide some better
illustrations for this important documentation.
