Samba + CUPS + HP8500N

Hummm, sure, I guess that really would work. The problem is I don't declare
every printer I have, I simply let Samba load all printers from the
printcap, so I can't set that print command for this one printer without
messing with the rest.

Anyway, I just left it that way, looks like I can live with that! :)

Thanks for the reply.
