Question printing and bootsplash


I'm new to Mandriva LE 2005. New to Mandrake alltogether. Former SuSE user.

1. How do I access a printer connected to a windows network? there's this one windows XP machine acting as a print server on my LAN.

When I go to Mandrakelinux Control Center | Hardware | Set up Printers all I see is the CUPS configuration option. But since this LAN runs no CUPS I'm stuck.

What packages I need to have SAMBA do the spooling instead of CUPS?

2. How do I disable the dead penguin from the bootsplash and gnome login screen?

Thanks in advance.

why can't you use cups to do this? i don't know anything about the mandrake configuration but if the cups service is running on your system, go to http://localhost:631 and configure the windows printer there. I've never used samba for printing, but afaik samba only gets used to export an existing printer (even one configured locally through cups) to other networked machines, i.e. the server, not the client.

thanks for the tip....I configured the printer via http://localhost:631/
I also added the UNIX printing services to the windows xp box.

I can print the test page just fine from http://localhost:631/

However, I cannot print from console of any other application.

Errors I get from console:
Code:
lpr -P printer mysql.txt
lpr: error - unable to print file: server-error-service-unavailable
Code:
 lpr-cups -P printer mysql.txt
lpr: error - unable to print file: server-error-service-unavailable
Cups is running:

Code:
ps aux | grep cups
frodo     7260  0.0  1.4  33684  7672 ?        Ssl  11:53   0:00 eggcups --sm-client-id default6
root      7756  0.0  0.5   5944  2724 ?        Ss   11:54   0:00 cupsd
However, I can print from samba by despite the NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED listing \* error.

Code:
smbclient //server/printer -U username password
Domain=[OAHU] OS=[Windows 5.1] Server=[Windows 2000 LAN Manager]
smb: \> ls
NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED listing \*
smb: \> printmode
smb: \> print mysql.txt
putting file mysql.txt as mysql.txt (2.3 kb/s) (average 2.3 kb/s)
any ideas?
