  Double cool. I guess reading the files helps :-)

  Have you tried anything else? I've tried getting my laptop to print to
a postscript printer attached to a WinNT 4.0 machine here at work, but
nothing but the CUPS did the job. However, CUPS is taking a whopping 6Mb
of laptop's precious 32Mb, so I've been looking for alternatives though
unsuscessfully. I tried xpdq, but it just fails silently on me as the
author of the only samba interface I could find on the web warned.
