Take Hoosier_1701's advice!
Authored by: tedlandis on Nov 03, '02 01:17:07PM

I agree 100%
Step #7 (Adding a printer to CUPS) should be in bold and all caps.
Do NOT try to use the same printer definition for both Mac printing and Windows printing!!!
Add a second CUPS printer definition!

Also I agree that it doesn't matter what printer definition you use. The output from Windows is already formatted by the driver on the Windows side and is being transfered to the printer in a raw format. This is why you had to uncomment those lines in Steps #3 and #4.

Also for those of you who are printing from Win98 PCs that don't have Internet Printing capabilities built in, try installing the Internet Printing package that comes with Windows ME (on the CDROM). It works fine in Win98 as well.
