I've worked on both kind of systems, but such a long time agoo, that
I end up mixing them up in all kind of unpredictable ways:)

Good thing that others are reading the posts aswell, the do an awfull

So Paul, you shouldn't test for `lp' but for `lpr'.  Try this:

# type lpr

and show us the result
