IP print services

Does Win98 have IP print service capability? If so, how the heck do you configure it? I've done a little snooping on the microsnot support site and couldn't find anything  . . . implying that IP print doesn't exist.

Thanks in advance.

I think you need to get something that allows you to install a standard TCP/IP port (like HP JetDirect). Then you can redirect an installed printer to that port. So, in short, 98 doesn't have a native system for IP printing.
