I have three Puppy Linux machines, two desktops
and one laptop.

They all see and print to the Samsung laser
tied to a USB port on one of the desktops using

Am working on adding a HP color printer as a
second option.  I have a conflict between the
Samsung and the HP at the moment but did once
have both working so I have a bad setting

No MS versions of windows anywhere here at the
moment, have been experimenting with WINE so as
to avoid anything MS, so no experience with Samba

When I was an administrator at Trinity College
I used Samba to print to printers on MS-based
desktops from my Linux laptop.  Been a while
so I don't recall the details.
