current printtool (now printconf) information was not available for beta--the
correct information is now in the Getting Started Guide
Comment 2 Need Real Name 2001-03-20 12:56:13 EST
I may not have properly indicated that I am referring to the Wolverine
documentation. Where can I
get the updated Printtool Documentation and or updated Getting Started Guide?
Comment 3 John Ha 2002-03-22 12:31:08 EST
The most current version of the Red Hat Linux Getting Started Guide is available
at the following URL:


The current documentation updates the printer configuration section with
information about the new printconf utility.
