I had been trying to add a second printer on the windowsbo x rather than change the location of the first. Everything seems to work now: I can now print from either machine. However, this arrangement makes it _much_ slower to print from the windows machine, which is where 90% of the jobs will come from. So I'd like to move the printer to the windows box but I don't know how to debug this problem where pages sent from linux via SMB are truncated near the end. This seems a less common problem than simply having trouble getting printing to work at all, so I will re-post it to the lists. List folks please Cc: me as I'm not subscribed to either of them. Thanks again, Rob -- Amnesia used to be my favorite word, but then I forgot it.
