We're printing on our HP printers via Jetdirect cards,
and I've got lpd based queueing on a Sun Sparcstation
(SunOS 4.1.3_U1) using lpd.  Samba (1.9.18p3 on that
box) provides SMB printer services to a couple dozen 
Win95 and WinNT workstations.

I had printer driver services running for a while, but
that machine (Linux) had a disk crash, and I haven't 
re-created that capability.

lpd talks to the printer via a "netcat" utility that I
found on the seemy side of the internet tracks.  I could
only find an NT version that I "unported" back to SunOS.
The readme.txt was written by Weld Pond.

That's not JetAdmin, but it does get us to the printer.
