Uniprint from Rcomp or get a Printer Server box.  But both these cost
money

It can also be done through Samba.  I would not say it is any simpler
than Lanman98.

Can Samba help an acorn share a pc printer? I can't work out how to do that.

I have set it up with LanMan98. However for this to work you have to have
mounted a computer share with LanMan98 as well. Does anyone know of a way to
get LanMan98 to automatically connect to a share that is configured in it?
Thanks

Didn't know you had to mount a share first. Never tried without.

Put an obey file in Choices.Tasks with
connect98 <name> <servername> <sharename> <username> <password>
in it
