Q: How do I configure my Red Hat machine to print to a network printer?

The printer is an HP LaserJet5.

A: You can try Red Hat's printtool, but I found it's really useful only for local printers.

Take a look at the section on HP network printers in the printing HOWTO: http://en.tldp.org/HOWTO/Printing-HOWTO/network.html#networked-printers

You will also find a copy in your own system's /usr/doc/HOWTO/ directory.
