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.

Epson LQ-570 on the parallel port. After booting the printer appears to be not connected. The usual ready light is not on. When I try to print a test page from the setup at localhost:631 nothing happens. My printing manager indicates CUPS is selected and the Epson is accepting jobs.
Isn't there somewhere in the post-boot sequence I'm supposed to request parallel port support?
Originally posted by gbonvehi You've to uncomment the lines that loads parallel port stuff in /etc/rc.d/rc.modules.
The lines are: /sbin/modprobe lp and /sbin/modprobe parport_pc
Thanks. Great! I now have a /dev/lp0 and if I "cat filename >/dev/lp0" I get results from the printer. I now know that the CUPS server is running. But whatever gets sent to the printer via CUPS never gets there.
