I have a Fedora Core 1 machine with Samba 3. I was reading the "Samba-3 by Example" samba guide and I am having trouble understanding Chapter 3 section 3 ("3.3 Implementation" section of "Chapter 3 Small Office Network"). 
On the entry for Network Printers in '/etc/hosts', are the IP numbers provided beside the printers the print server's IP addresses? 
I'm feeling kind of stupid asking this, because deep inside I think I know the answer. 
Is the answer, yes? :)
Here is what it says:

2. Place an entry for the machine sleeth in the /etc/hosts. The printers are network attached, so it is desirable that there should be entries for the network printers also.An example /etc/hosts file is shown here: sleeth sleeth1 sleeth2 hplj6 hplj4 qms

Thanks  :)
