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 recently tried to set up Fedora 10 as a print server. The server is physically connected to a Lexmark E238 laser printer via a USB cable, and I am able to print fine locally. Several Windows XP machines as well as one industrial controller (embedded system with built-in Ethernet and LPR printing, which only prints text reports) are connected via Ethernet and are set to print to the server. All are on the same subnet. CUPS-LPD is running on the server and is started via xinetd, and the server is set up for sharing and remote access. The printer is named "printer".
I have set up the windows machines to print using LPR and the generic/text driver. These machines are able to print with no problem. The embedded system, however, will not print anything. I know that it is able to communicate with the server to some degree because it does not display a communications error, as it does when it is unplugged from the switch or when the server is switched off (or port 515 is closed). If I program this industrial controller to print to the same printer using an HP JetDirect print server it works fine and the same goes for a D-Link hardware print server (port 515) I have tried.
Any advice you can offer would be much appreciated!
