I am using the Samba package included in Red Hat 8.  I am trying to
share a printer on a Windows 98 share on the network.  lpr fails on
startup, and print from kword fails, with the error message
"Get_local_host:hostname 'redhat1' bad".  However, this is the name for
localhost.  I can print to the printer using sambaclient. Any
