The following may help you a bit:



PS: This is a work in progress and it is being added to/editted on a daily

samba-2.2.8a (current stable version) also.

I'd appreciate your feedback on it.

I have used samba as strictly a PDC and file server.  I have nerver set up a printer in Linux or in Samba.  I would like to be pointed in the right direction in order to set this up.  Thanks in advanced for any information.

The Lanier systems support PS, PCL 5, and their own custom protocol.  I will be printing from a W2k machine that is joined to a samba PDC.  the serving I would like to set up would also be joined to this PDC.
