Well, I used the default printcap, which contains the following entry:

lp|local line printer:\
	:lp=/dev/lpt0:\
	 sd=/var/spool/output/lpd:\
	 lf=/var/log/lpd-errs:

Yes, I replaced it with the one that comes in the #2 CD, labeled "Live
File System" (in the Walnut Creek set), but nothing changed.

I suspected a problem with the enhanced parallel port setting, so I
changed it to normal mode, but nothing.

What else could I try?   Thanks in advance.
