Well, after several weeks of trying the Sun NeWSprint Archive server, it appears
that the darn thing just will not send out printer handler files. I've since
contacted my Sun rep to get the handlers I need. If anyone knows anyplace on
the Internet that I can obtain the handlers, drop me a line, otherwise I am
goning to let Sun find what I need.
