First of all setup the IP number of the printer (enabling to use TCPIP
IO). Now use the printer configuration from RH6.2 and select Network
printer. Enter the IP number and the queue as "JetDirect". It will use
the port 9100. Then try printing a test page. That's it. For windows
please use windows news groups for info.
