Thanks for the cups printing tip that you submitted to LFS!

Although I also endured the gauntlet of setting up my printer by wading 
through the internet, your tip confirm that I was set up ok.  I wish I'd 
seen your tip at the start.

I wasn't aware of a2ps.... i was using mpage to get multiple pages on 
one physical sheet.   I installed the a2ps and it wasn't long before I 
was removing mpage from my hard drive.

thanks again!
