Telnet into the printer, hit enter couple times, type forward slash and hit
enter. You should get a page like this:

Please type [Return] two times, to initialize telnet configuration

Type "banner:0", that should disable banner page, then type quit. You might

I have a Linux box that has a HP LaserJet 5L printer connected to it
and Samba (2.0.3) providing a print service for Win95 clients
connected to the LAN. How can I make Samba NOT ask for a password
whatsoever when a Win95 client connects to the print service?

I also have a printing related problem: when I print something from a
Win95 client it comes out fine, but I always get an extra blank page.
How do I get rid of this annoying "feature"?
