Re: [TCLUG:5917] IPX network printer

If the printers are on netware then the ncpfs should work (not sure on 4.X
w/o emulation server side). pqlist shows the printers and nprint does the
printing. Redhat 5.2's printtool does the setup perfectly, except that you
must type in a global password for all users (for ncpmount and
pqlist, etc, it reads ~/.nwclient for password) and until you change the
perms the password is global readable.   

Hope this helps,

[What the world should have learned from] those tragic circumstances [of the 
Holocaust] is that bigotry and hatred are not the most urgent problems; the 
most urgent, the most disgraceful, the most shameful and the most tragic 
problem is silence.
