Re: [vox-tech] printer config: hp2100 on Red Hat 8 + samba



redhat-config-printer is a text configuration tool. If
you don't have it on your system I belive the rpm is
of the same name.

I didn't see the driver for the hp2100M.  A google
search came up with a reference to using the laserjet
4 driver as working.
