RE: Debian Printing
I did the stop and start as you suggested and got replies that lpd was
stopped and started. I do not know what you mean by "You did put printer
support in the kernel or a kernel module, right?" My understanding is that
I am using modules and I added the lp module with modconfig. Is there
another "printer" module that needs added? I see a "parport" and a
"parport_pc" under misc where the lp module is. And, there is a line "alias
parport_lowlevel parport_pc" in the /etc/conf.modules file.

You should not need to reboot. I just restart my print spooler:
I believe there is also a '/etc/init.d/lprng restart' but I am not
sure. You might be using a different print spooler that I use.
You did put printer support in the kernel or a kernel module, right?
