Thanks for your reply. I'am running SuSe Linux 6.0 with samba
version 1.9.18p10. I have installed my HP cdeskjet printer with
YAST (SuSe) as a samba printer. SuSe use the apsfilter as print
filter. I have a file /etc/apsfilterrc.cdeskjet. In this file
there is a line:

  REMOTE_PRINTER="/usr/bin/samba_print //kinderen/hp -U kinderen -N -P"

where kinderen= win98 client on which the HP printer is connected.

The samba_print file comes with the SuSe distributions. 
If you like I can send you this file as attachment.

The printcommand I use are:
"lpr text.file"
"lpr -Plp1 text.file"

Is there a way to solve the problem, as mentioned in my 
earlier e-mail.

I would be gratefull in case you could help me, thanks in
