What I did on my slackware 3.2 system is change the sd line in printcap
from /var/spool/lp1 to /var/spool/lpd.  It seems the group designation
is what LPRng is * on.

1. ICMP Difficulties with RedHat 4.1 and 2.0.27 and.30 Kernels

I've recently installed Red Hat Linux 4.1 on an HP XU/90 PC. The wierd
thing is that when I try to use ping or traceroute I get the error
messages saying "ping: unknown procotol icmp" and "icmp: procotol

I get the error when using the stock 2.0.27 from the Red Hat
distribution and using my usual customize kernels. I have use
NetKit-B-0.08-13.i386.rpm and NetKit-B-0.09-13.i386.rpm packages. I have
even recompile the NetKit 0.09 sources, and I still get the error. I
have some network mangement software that I use and all of it's icmp
functionality works with no problems.

I have installed Red Hat 4.1 on other computers systems without any
problems. I'm just about to wits end on this one.  Does anyone have any
ideas or suggestions?
