Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have an HP 5550dtn attached to our network and am trying to configure our Fedora Core 2 workstations to print to it.
The printer has a static ip address assigned to it and its JetDirect card is configured to run at 100 Mbps.
I have gone to the linux workstations and as root have invoked the setup utility to configure the connection to the printer. I have provided a queue name and selected jet direct as the network connection method. I then entered the ip address of the printer and kept the port number at the default 9100. When it came time for the driver selection, I chose HP, scrolled down to the Color LaserJet 5550 entry, and then picked the postscript driver associated with the printer.
When I do a test page to the printer, there are intermittent problems occurring: Sometimes the jobs get printed, othertimes they do not get through. Also, another workstation was initially able to print, but for some reason cannot print. If I reboot the printer, that sometimes helps with the jobs that were stuck in the queue, but that does not completely resolve the issue. For example, a workstation that was rebooted can at one time print, but if a subsequent job is sent to the printer, the job does not get done.
Has anyone got ideas on what is wrong, and what I need to do? Thanks.
