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'm trying to print from my debian computer to a Windows XP computer that is connected to my HP Deskjet 722C printer (using samba and cups)
I am installing the printer thru
lpadmin -p OfficePrinter -v smb://MSHOME/David@OFFICE/Printer2 -P /root/HP-DeskJet_722C-pnm2ppa.ppd
I enable it in the KDE printer manager.
If I print a test page it says it goes thru, and nothing prints. I get this error in the log:
I [08/Jun/2005:14:55:51 -0700] Job 5 queued on 'OfficePrinter' by 'root'.
I [08/Jun/2005:14:55:51 -0700] Started filter /usr/lib/cups/filter/pstops (PID 4076) for job 5.

E [08/Jun/2005:14:55:52 -0700] PID 4077 stopped with status 1!
I [08/Jun/2005:14:55:52 -0700] Hint: Try setting the LogLevel to "debug" to find out more.
But there's more, I checked my foomatic debug log and I find this error message:
Current allocation mode is local
Last OS error: 32
ESP Ghostscript 7.07.1: Unrecoverable error, exit code 1
renderer return value: 127
renderer received signal: 127
Process dying with "The renderer command line returned an unrecognized error code 127.", exit stat: 1

KID3 exited with status 1
Renderer exit stat: 1
Renderer process finished
Killing process 4085 (KID3)
Process dying with "Error closing renderer", exit stat: 1

Any Ideas? If I can't solve this i'll probably have to ditch linux.
i don't know those error codes so this might not be it -- i had to do a strange thing to get hp printer connected to win 2000 to work from linux cups/samba
took me forever to figure it out so try this
in windows you know settings->printers
right click options
then on the ports tab uncheck "Enable bidirectional support"
