Still mucking round with Arch - am up to getting the printer going:

Problem:no noise from the printer which works in the windows partition on the 
same machine.

At the risk of being told RTFM I enclose more info below:

I've installed footmatic/ghostscript/cups/downloaded the ppd files, 
started /etc/rc.d/cups start

The kernel is 2.6.3  I compiled from scratch and have gleaned the following 
from my system:

modules loaded
address@hidden richard]# lsmod
Module                  Size  Used by
lp                          8484    0
parport_pc           19708  2
parport                22880  2     lp,parport_pc
8139too              20608   0

boot up messages
Feb 25 11:30:57 Surgery2 kernel: lp0: using parport0 (polling).
Feb 25 13:32:58 Surgery2 kernel: parport0: PC-style at 0x378 (0x778)

These seem to be in /dev
address@hidden dev]# ls -al lp*

lr-xr-xr-x  1 root root 10 Feb 26 18:42 lp1 -> printers/1

running lynx http://localhost:631/

Any help in getting an output more than appreciated.

Great distro despite the learning curve for an non-it educated person such as 

Regards and thanks in anticipation
