printing to y2k pro pronter


Hi !

I am tryng to print to a printer which is attached to a y2k pro workstation

I read that I need to config /etc/printcap

but whan I open this file I see the following massage:


# DO NOT EDIT! MANUAL CHANGES WILL BE LOST!
# This file is autogenerated by printconf-backend during lpd init.
#
# Hand edited changes can be put in /etc/printcap.local, and will be included.

###############################################################################
## Everything below here is included verbatim from /etc/printcap.local ##
###############################################################################
# printcap.local
#
# This file is included by printconf's generated printcap,
# and can be used to specify custom hand edited printers.

"/etc/printcap" [readonly] 15L, 588C

what should I do?

thanks
