Networking a printer

I demand that Paul F. Johnson may or may not have written...

For printing, NFS works (you'll need pcnfsd, since Printers wants a user
name) and Samba should work (memory says that you'll need to set up the
driver to print to file). For scanning, the easiest solution (AFAICS) would
be to put the output where the RISC OS boxes can see it.

Not necessary. Once you've got Samba working well enough to show you
the network neighbourhood (assuming the RISCOS boxen ape windoze in
this) you should just be able to configure your box to talk directly
to the printer on your Linux box, like you would for any M$ shared
printer on an NT box.
