Cups questions ...

Greetings ...

    Slap me if I am asking the wrong list ...

    First, something that might need to be in the docs ( if it is, I did 
not see it, but then
I can't say I have read it from page 0-500, sorry ... ) If Samba starts 
before Cups start,
the printer in Cups don't come up with Samba, ( lost our printers after 
a restart, and took
me a few minutes and lots of panic to figure it out  ), I see this has 
been fixed in RawHide.

    My question is, Samba chats with the Cups deamon, is possible that 
Samba could put
into the logs that it can't find the Cups deamon, might make less problems.

    Other question, in RedHat 9, they are using Cups 1.1.17, which Samba 
does not use the comments, but RawHide is using Cups 1.1.19, which Samba 
is able to use the comments for the printers ... I take it that Cups 
1.1.19 gives this infomation
out, were Cups 1.1.17 does not?

    One last question, to backup the "Point-n-Install" printers, one has 
to backup the drivers
directory and tdb with the printer info, but if I remember correctly, 
you have to shutdown smb,
to that, or am I wrong on this account?
