Printing to a samba-shared printer works under NT and 2000,
but why not under 98?
The spoolfile finally reaches the queue-directory
e.g. /var/spool/lpd/ljet3-a4-auto-mono-300, but than nothing happens.
I can also see the printjob in the Win98 printer queue, but it stuck.
The point is even, that from now on I can't even print under Unix.
It seems that the Win98 queue actually grabs/blocks the Unix queue from
that point on.
I tried some of these printing scripts entries in /etc/printcap,
but didn't get a final result til now.
What about this Win98 magic?
