Hiyer Brian

Well I am a complete newbie to FreeBSD and I must say I liked what I saw
but I like to download the crossword from my paper early in a morning,
5am and print it up so being unable to do that in BSD I put Linux back
on.   I change O/S's at least once a week for the fun of it and it's
good for learning sbout them ;-)  I will never use Gate's stuff as a
matter of principle.

I was trying to be helpful, with limited knowledge, although I have only
run Unix stuff since Slackware came on 80 odd floppies, the first
Slackware CD I have is 3.5!!

I actually used aspfilter with the last Slackware I had but not a lot of
joy.   In Linux CUPS sets the printer up in most versions without
trouble.  It is in the FreeBSD 4.4 but how to start it and use it I am
at a loss.

I write this now cos I am off to put FreeBSD back on and have another
go, if I can get the printer going ok, I will stick to it if not well I
am afraid it's Linux until I can.

The other problem I have with Konquerer in BSD and Linux it that it
cannot find the Java executable when in Linux this works fine in
Netscape.   Any help on that would be welcome.
