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 am trying to configure my RH7.2 to print to my Lexmark Z12 over USB.
The only route I have found trawling through Google etc is to install CUPS then download and install the lexmark-cups-kit.
The link for this is always http://mandrakesoft.com/~tkamppeter/...ups-kit.tar.gz
However this appears to have expired - I just get 'The client cannot connect, contact Administrator' message.
Does anyone have a valid location for this file or a copy they can mail me?
Forgot to mention,
I have installed cups!
My printer is being recognized on the /dev/usb/lp0 as 'Lexmark? Color Inkjet' - so I presume my device is configured.
Using the standard printconf-gui with a Lexmark 3200 driver I get some garbled output from the printer - so I guess I just need the right driver!
Installed gimp-print (compiled with the cups option).
This gives me the new drivers in CUPS.
However none of them produce any output from the Z12. A few of them make the data light on the printer come on - but then lock the printer.
I believe the Z12 uses a proprietry GDI driver and as such does not respond well to PCL/PJL/ASCII etc.
