Still it's a valid question, if you are migrating from samba to AFS you h=
to replace samba with something else for printing (or continue to run sam=

Here we use lprng for printing, it works fine in both *ix (linux+solaris)
and windows (2000/xp), windows supports this "out of the box", even if
you have to manually add "LPR printing" as a windows component.
