This has still most the *old* version of the printing docu included, and
hardly anything from the new stuff. Believe me, the new stuff is *much*
better, more complete and spiced with more examples.

... you are selling sour lemons here... ;-)
No, the *current* development state of the printing HOWTO chapter is
(This is only temporarily until it is converted from HTML to Docbook/XML.
Then it will go into the document John named. I hope this will be within
the next 2 weeks or sooner.) Though it says it is for Samba 3.0, *most*
things apply to Samba-2.2.x...

A friend of mine owns a print shop. He has 3 Lanier printers
(models 2138, 5265, 5813) They are all LAN attached. I would like
to set up a samba print server for these machines. 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.
I have a custom built distribution on this system. I can install
any printing solution (LPR, CUPOS, etc) that would be needed. I would
like to know some of the advantages of each system. 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.
