My experience was that printing on Linux befuddled me *until* CUPS,
which has made everything work well. In the case of Fedora Core 3, I
simply hit the Fedora -> System Settings -> Printing menu, then add a
printer. I've been successful in configuring printers connected via the
parallel port, printers shared by a Windows box, and even printers on an
old Linksys print server (which magically turned out to support LPR). I
have also managed to share the printers on my Linux system with
others... and every single one of those was point-and-click simple.
