AFAIK you can just print from lpd to a jetdirect card... you only need to
know the ip-number for the jetdirect, and can then add a rlp (remote
printer entry) in your /etc/printcap... Samba will then share your
printers to the other machines on the lan... but you don't need samba to
print to them from unix... thay are lpr compatible...
