Thankee, thankee, thankee for the links. Found the ia32libs download on the first link and wiil use it if I can't get apt to download from sources list.
But question is is the url the new deb mirror to put in my sources.list to update and install with?  Has the intrepid deb mirror changed for the ia32libs file? I took a quick look at the second link and didn't see an explanation why the standard sources.list wouldn't download and acknowledge the file. I can easily download and install the package, and will if necessary, but want to get intrepid sources.list correct.
Had to bring the 64bit machine to BestBuy for warranty repairs on the cpu fan and video card, so, it's going to be 2 weeks minimum before I can use the file to reinstall the printer and work on my share problem.  Darnit, just when I was having fun on Intrepid-:))  But anyway, will have all my ducks in place by then.
Thanks for the info.  Had me worried for a while.
