When a Smurf chokes, what color does it turn?

Yep. I do the same thing, use AsanteTalk and the Netatalk software to print to my DeskWriter.

Speaking of printers, how do I get a LaserJet 2100TN to work under YDL? This Ethernet PostScript printer can be accessed on the LAN using its own TCP/IP Address, but I couldn't yet figure out how I must configure Linux for it. Could someone give me step by step instructions to set this up? Thanks a lot!
