Ok the main thing is that their is a Suyn consultance special which
you can contsact from your local Sun office::

>>October, 1991 Announcements:
>>New Special:
>> is a modified version of the Standard SunOS
>> Printer Spooling System, derived from BSD 4.3. It supports two
>> important features more than the standard spooler. On one hand
>> it supports the NIS database (ypprintcap) and on the other hand
>> it supports printing to a remote TCP connection, which means it
>> can support printing to devices attached to terminal servers.

Others mentioned the idea of a global printcap with links from
/etc/printcap using the automounter and other goodies. Myself
I'll try the NIS version first. IF anyone wants the other
options please let me know. PS I will be outweek 21-25 Oct


If you throw a New Year's Party, the worst thing that you can do would
be to throw the kind of party where your guests wake up today, and call
you to say they had a nice time. Now you'll be be expected to throw
another party next year.

What you should do is throw the kind of party where your guest wake up
several days from now and call their lawyers to find out if they've
been indicted for anything. You want your guests to be so anxious to
avoid a recurrence of your party that they immediately start planning
parties of their own, a year in advance, just to prevent you from
having another one ...

If your party is successful, the police will knock on your door, unless
your party is very successful in which case they will lob tear gas
through your living room window. As host, your job is to make sure
that they don't arrest anybody. Or if they're dead set on arresting
someone, your job is to make sure it isn't you ...
