I think Cornelius is quite correct about this (in sysV there is no 
/etc/printcap, but a system-administrated printer destination needs to be 
entered). However, luckily for Mac users, if a unix box is on the same 
local network as Macs, the Columbia Appletalk Package can be installed on 
the unix box, and any user can send a postscript file to any available 
appletalk linked printer. Works like a charm.
