I don't really know, but I believe you need to create a configuration
file specifying where jobs can come from (and other info), make it
available using TFTP, and let it know where it is with BOOTP or DHCP.

I've never had to do this; but IMO LPRng would be the right package
for implementing it, as it was developed at least with this in mind.

(Re-reading this reply, I'm thinking maybe I should just keep quiet
