Indeed, JetDirect should be the way to go; I was only responding to your
questions about file/print sharing.  By "sharing that printer in no
time", I meant, "you'll be using that shared printer in no time".  In
other words, editing your smb.conf and smbpasswd files to conform to the
domain/user/passwords in your LAN and starting the smbd daemon usually
helps things along.  It's an alternative to JetDirect, if you can't get
that working.
