Have installed the addition component Print Services For Unix as per MS.

However, I do not see LPD Service running.

Should I see this?

I am trying to allow Unix Clients to print to our 2003 Print Server. Have I missed anything???

Check your System log for event 4000.  LPDSVC: "LPD started successfully".  It doesn't show as running on my server either.

The name of the process you are should look for in Services is TCP/IP Print Server

According to Microsoft:

"TCP/IP Print Server—enables TCP/IP-based printing using the Line Printer Daemon protocol. If this service is stopped, TCP/IP-based printing will be unavailable. If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start."
