My biggest concern is that the article may be making use of a feature in the 
configuration tool or cups. It was written in late 2004. If I just play and 
see what happens I might mess up my local printing. If it is a feature I 
think it's a very desirable one for simple set ups like mine which just uses 
a 4 port adsl router. Normally there are only 2 machines plugged in. It would 
also be interesting to see if the same printing route can be used from my 
son's linux desktop. Given the queue that should be easy.

I'm assuming kde people know what I mean by a feature ie. Wasn't intended, 
does work and is useful. I've written one or two myself.

Thanks for the how to link but I still hope some one can shed some light on 
the raw queues aspect.
