Printer is online!! :)

But I feel like such an idiot. I don't recall setting up the printer with Jetdirect under Mandrake. I did recall directing it to the ip address at port 9100. My problem was I was trying to set it up with everything EXCEPT Jetdirect under FC3. I thought "it couldn't be this because I don't have a Jetdirect server". Thanks for the education.
