  The restriction is not quite that bad: if the print queue exists on
samba server, lprm requests can be issued against it.  If you print
with ``lpr -P somewhere:someprinter'', roothood appears necessary.

  I simply set up printers with admintool, with the commands
	Browse -> Printers
	Edit -> Add -> Access to Printer
and then specify
	Printer Name: the name of the printer on the remote machine
	Print Server: the name of the remote machine
	Descripotion: anything
and then OK.

  This should cause the new printer to be acessable as if it were local,
and the lpq and lprm commands work as you'd normally expect.
