I've never been able to make cups work in Linux.  I have to save a document to 
a memory card, then remove the card and put it into the cardreader of the 
machine which has the printer attached and then sign into that computer and 
print it.  Everyone tells me I have to have some sort of windows machine in 
my network in order to print so that is more off putting than not being able 
to print through my network.  I have asked the question now on 18 maillists 
have 17,089 replies which tell me how to set up a windoze print server on my 
network and exactly zero replies on how to MAKE IT WORK where every one of my 
8 machines run Linux.

Just wondering here if you have used your browser to address CUPS via: http://localhost:631
