as I try to configure my printer (HP Deskjet 690C) with RedHat Linux 5.1, i got a message that i better install Samba before configuring LAN Printer Manager.
I don't find Samba anywhere and it looks like everything is well installed.
What should I do Please ? (it' so hard to sleep!!)

Thanks a lot !

You only need Samba if the printer is a network printer. Samba is a package of utilities you can use to connect to other computers (only SMB: Win95/98/NT/WfW and some other systems as well).

Whoops, it seems to me that you need Samba after all. You can get it at: http://samba.anu.edu.au
