Thanks for the tip, but this isn't a domain environment.  There is NO
security property available for this printer.  This is the only
machine I'm tolerating a M$ OS on, so I don't really need the hassle
of a domain.  The printer in question has its own ethernet port, and
runs its own printserver, and security is intended to be open to any
system within my network.
