Is the printre installed on your machine .. .ie does it plug into your lpt
port ??? or is it access over the network ????

I don't really s'pose it matters ... If printtool has been built to require
samabe, which seem knida silly, then you'll need to install it:

mount /mnt/cdrom
rpm -Uvh /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/samba*rpm

should install sambe for you ..... give that a try and see what happens ???

Yours Tony.
