First, welcome to LQ!
Second, it helps us to help you if you take the time to write clearly and unambiguously. Correct capitalisation, punctuation and grammar not only make your post easier to understand, but easier to read as well:
trying to get samsung ml-1710 printer to work on redhat 9. all seems well when i do the cd bit
Eh? What "cd bit", cd as in change directory or as in "Compact Disk"?
i see two icons in mozilla even though there is only one printer
Eh? What icons do you see? What have you put into mozilla's address bar?
also tried without samsung cd with no luck
Please supply details if you require assistance.
