Description of Problem:
printconf should provide a control to enable/disable the configured printer
queues. It should probably call "lpc disable"/"lpc enable"  (for LPRng) or
"disable"/"enable" (for CUPS).

Ideally, printconf would be able to show the status of each configured queue
(paused, etc.).

Red Hat Linux is no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc. If you are still
running Red Hat Linux, you are strongly advised to upgrade to a
current Fedora Core release or Red Hat Enterprise Linux or comparable.
Some information on which option may be right for you is available at

Red Hat apologizes that these issues have not been resolved yet. We do
want to make sure that no important bugs slip through the cracks.
Please check if this issue is still present in a current Fedora Core
release. If so, please change the product and version to match, and
check the box indicating that the requested information has been
provided. Note that any bug still open against Red Hat Linux on will be
closed as 'CANTFIX' on September 30, 2006. Thanks again for your help.
