That's odd, I ran 9.3 on the desktop for over a year at work. Print setup was
quick and easy, and I printed stuff on network attached printers many times
daily - what steps did you take to set up the printer in yast? If not, where
did you run into trouble in the effort to print the test page?

You've got something else going on there - I've run mail clients and mail
servers on 10.0 and never saw a piece of mail lost.

Can't help you with expee, I've certainly no use for it. As far as postscript,
you can only use the postscript printer driver if you are printing to a
postscript printer. Why not just choose the printer model from the menu in the
printer setup tool, and let yast decide what driver to use? OOO doesn't care
what kind of printer driver you use, only that you can print.
