I'm trying to use an Apple LaserWriter IIf printer for printing on ethernet network with G3s.  Tried using a printer bridge from another model LaserWriter and it froze the G3s.  What should I use? or Where do I get a printer bridge for system 8?

Are you referring to a hardware LocalTalk bridge, or software that allows you to print over a serial connection?

There is a piece of software called Laserwriter Bridge that you can get from the Apple site. It's a control panel that you can run on a Mac, localtalk the printer directly to it, and it will serve it to the network.
