he will then be well prepared.

Joke aside, there was some help at the end of the original posting. His 
question was just a bit to unspecific for me to be able to understand 
his real problem. It seems that his son installed him FreeBSD plus KDE 
without a printer or he installed a printer and did tell the father how 
to use it.

Just check his original post, you might can help him.
