A salesman at my company wants to sell two big printer/copier/scanner/fax machines to a hospital.  The hospital is using a Novell type network.  We need to do a demo over there and we need to install a printer on their network but we are very unsure about how to do that.

We have installed countless printers on Microsoft LAN/WANs.  Do I need anything besides a workable IP address and subnet from the local IT administrator?  Thanks in advance for your help, we are deperate.

When using an IP based printer there is nothing different due to Novell.

If it was being setup as a print queue on the network that would be different.

Most all of the multi-function devices like you are describing have there own setup CD that will load the drivers for you.

Todd's pretty much said it all. IP printing is independent of any given server OS like Novell or Windows or Linux. It only differs when you want to make that traffic run through the server itself, which is where Novell print queues, etc kick in.

If you are using the novell instructions above be very sure that you are using the right version and lastest patches from Novell as well. Many things change with each version. Currently, I am running Novell 6.5 along with Windows 2003 server, Windows 2000 server, Windows Nt 4.0 server, and a Free BSD box for mail and internet proxy. All work very well together as long as the Novell Client software is current as well.

Novell is always improving the OS and the client software so it is best to check in offen.
