From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
I want to pass print jobs to a remote Postscript printer that is hosted by a 
Solaris server.  I want my local machine to request a banner page.  I don't see 
any way to configure the print queue to request a banner.  The automatically 
generated entry for the printer in /etc/printcap includes the :sh: (suppress 
header) option.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run printconf-gui or printconf-tui
2.Try to find some way to request a banner

printconf altogether. (Information on how to do this is in
