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.

Honest, I did try to find a discussion for this before posting.
I have an HP 970C printer attached to my RH9 desktop. It works fine.
On the same network I have a RH8 laptop which can ping and be pinged by IP and by name.
On the system with the printer I have set up a share on the print queue named hpdeskje. The share is set for All Hosts. The queue type is locally connected with the string /dev/lp0 Hewlett-Packard Deskjet 970C in the window below. All the other values in the configuration are default and I am using their recommended printer driver.
On the laptop (RH8) I have set up a printer to use a queue named hpdeskje of type Unix LPD. The server name in the proper case is in the Server field, and the Queue field also has hpdeskje in the proper case.
I can not make this contraption print. I have tried \\hostname, leaving the print queue field blank (which is supposed to cause the system to use the default print queue on the server), and have also plugged in the IP address of the printer host just for drill.
