I've an HP 932C deskjet printer. It is hooked to a computer called oscar which is running Win98. The printer is shared. We'll say the share is called //oscar/printer I can print to it from other Win98 machines on the network without problem. I want to print to it from my Red Hat 7.2 machine. I've been all over the place trying to find help online on webpages and stuff (Red Hat's site, linuxprinting.org, etc), but either what they're saying doesn't make sense or doesn't work. I need someone to very closely guide me through the setup and be able to explain what I'm doing and why so that I understand what I'm doing so I could do it again later. I think I've installed the latest drivers, but I'm not 100% sure. I think I may also need to reinstall ghostscript, but I'm not particularly sure how to do that either and don't want to mess up mixing 6.51 and 6.52 and lose the whole thing. I have more points if we really get into things.
Here's the link that I've been using as an install guide:
Here's Red Hat's manual page about installing an SMB printer (which hasn't worked):
Here's a link that I think is supposed to be useful, but I don't know how:
The page i'm using as an install guide asks for some diagnostics to see things working... here are the relevant outputs (in order):
Hewlett-Packard Co. Inkjet Server 1.0.2
Copyright (c) 2001, Hewlett-Packard Co.
(means I've got 1.0.2 installed correctly, right?)

DJ630 DJ6xx DJ6xxP DJ8xx DJ9xx DJ9xxVIP AP21xx hpdj md2k md5k stp lxm3200
there is no ijs entry in there. I think that's important, but have no idea what to do about it.
Hopefully this helps someone help me get this going! Thanks so much for your help!! ttyl,
