Im trying ( for 4 weeks) to print to my Apple 
Laserwriter form my PC over the Linux-Server. 
Now I can print from the Linux-Server
directly print wite the command 

lpr -P lp4 <hostname>

On my Windows PC is win Mill.-Edt. installed and 
the Linux-Syxstem is Suse Linux 7.0 professional Edt.

My Problem is that I cannot find the Printer in my
network-enviroment but the filesharing with  
Macintosh <-> Linux <-> Windows is working fine.

Does anybody know, how can I prepare my config-files
for the prining?
Any advice would be appreciated!
