All submasks and gateways are set for none or

My questions are?

2. being a suxy NooB I have not the foggiest Idea on how to setup mandrake 7 to be a print server for these printers.

3. how does the print que work?

4. do I need a crossover cable between the win98 ip: and linux box eth0 ip:

5. what do I need to connect the printers to the linux print server?
