I sent this yesterday, but it seems not to have gone
through--apologies if it's a duplicate.

I've never gotten around to setting up printing from           
my FreeBSD machine--the discussion in the Handbook is 
rather frightening--and now that I've decided I should
probably give it a try, I find that the Handbook doesn't            
even let me get started.

I have two situations for this computer (a laptop
running FreeBSD-4.8). I have a home network that
has an older (non-Ethernetted) HP LaserJet 6MP; this      
is attached to the network via an AsanteTalk AppleTalk-   
Ethernet bridge. The Macs on the network (OSX and 8.6)    
can all see the printer. What do I need to do to print    
to this printer from my FreeBSD machine when it's on
the network?

In the second case, I just have a desktop printer-- some HP
Deskjet color thing, the 990 I think--that only has a USB
connection. The Handbook doesn't mention USB printing at all.

In both cases I'm not looking to do anything fancy,
none of this user-accounting or header-pages stuff.
I just want to be able to send jobs to the printer
and have them come out. I guess I'd also be curious
how to select one or the other, or more if they were
added to the network. Thanks for any pointers on
how to accomplish this.
