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 was tasked with moving a network printing solution off of Tru64 Unix onto Linux OEL 5.6. I have tried repeatedly to get CUPS to recognize my LPD settings but to no avail. The problem is that my queues are using 5 digit numbers. This worked fine on Unix because I specified an rm for each printer and that translated in the hosts file rather easily.
Long story short I am trying to remove CUPS from my system and go to an LPD printing solution. I uninstalled CUPS but am trying to figure out what to install to restore the base LPD commands/functionallity.
Thanks grim but I tried that and it didn't help at all. I am printing to a bunch of Windows boxes running WINLPD. From what I came across about the cups-lpd is that it seemed to want cups boxes running on the receiving end. The issue that appears to be the problem is the old LPD could have multiple aliases for the same printer, whereas cups only lets you get away with one.
