WOW!! What a difference! I did that on machine #2 (only, so far).
When I click on Printers, I see what the machine thinks are
*nine* : my wife's downstairs is there twice, once as itself and once
with "-fax" appended to it. All the other seven are my one machine, once
as default with my name for the machine it's on, but no IP; the others
have either an IP or some other indication where they are; I'm seeing it
double on #1 (as default and not), and double on #4 (with its same
correct IP both times, not together); sometimes it shows as published,
I tried to print the router's table, with IP and MAC numbers,
from a browser (Konqueror, despite the fact i run Gnome); but it just
asked me if the printer were connected.
Iiuc, I should go do the same on the other two clients (machine
#3 and #4, no printer attached), but *not* on #1, which does have the
printer, and must therefore be acting as the server. Right?
