This doesn't pertain *specifically* to XP, but:
Following is a sample /etc/printcap file entry that defines a print
queue named tank on the FreeBSD system pointed to an NT LPD server queue
named sherman on a NT Server named big.army.mil in the DNS. This uses
the rm printcap capability. Unlike the earlier examples, the output
print jobs are sent out not by the PC parallel port but over the network
to the NT server.
