Playing around with the setup a little more, I was able to get
LPD-O-Matic operating again, but only if I put the 'foomatic'

through Samba, but I cannot include both printer descriptions in
the same printcap without the first one obscuring the other. It seems

and restart the server. Do I just not understand or is this a
