It is possible to set up a PC as a proper UNIX printing host. You
need to run an lp daemon on your PC. If you are running Windows NT,
you don't need any extra software - NT can act as a UNIX print
server. Otherwise you will need to get an lpd program for your PC.
These are available on the net, with a bit of hunting.
You then need to get the system administrator of the IRIX machine to
set up a print queue for your printer. Once that is done, you can use
the standard IRIX lp command to print to it.
