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.

ok.. so in my OLD smb.conf on the old box, I ONLY had the global, the RAW, and the printers section.
However, the old printers section didn't have but 3 lines as apposed to this one. For somereason tho, this is what I had to do to get it to actually let the users print... IT constraints... wacky network around here. Anyway...
So if anyone can offer advice on the spooky FF prob that'd be kewl.
Just check to make sure the default paper size didn't change during the upgrade.
And also look at the server's postscript driver.
You may try changing it from the HP Laserjet6M driver to the Generic postscript driver.
I use the command line configuration tools for this, (coz I have to ssh into mine)
Newer Samba has more options and better security...
kewl. I was already reading the same page.. actually the similar one on SuSE8.0 but who's counting eh?
not using CUPS tho. Currently using LPD. Might have to switch to CUPS because I've tried alot of different scenarios just trying to get this to work the correct way. I'd pull my hair out if I hadn't shaved it all off!
Anywho, I'm guessing that there is something wrong with me lil lpd print calls. I'll nose around there and see what I can come up with.
P.s. heh.. i did try a number of changes regarding printer drivers and such... most of what is already packaged with SuSE tho.
I actually made some progress. I got it to FF a page before and after now... hehe hey, I didn't say it was positive progress.
3.3.1 SuSE Linux
SuSE ships with a modified version of apsfilter which is derived from an earlier release (of the 4.x series). These are incompatible in installation and usage, and support for their version is only available from SuSE.
However, you can uninstall the SuSE package and install the original tarball without any problems. In this case, installing printers is only possible with the SETUP script, not via yast or other SuSE configuration tools.
Now... is it the version of the filter? or is it the new version of the Ghostscript driver?
Tough to tell. Not finding much docs on info between SuSE7.2 to SuSE8.0 regarding changes in ghostscript drvs or the filters.
