Please correct me it I am wrong, but the interface to which FC3 is communicating and sending it's data is the JetDirect compatible interface of the Netport Print Server.

I too have a network printer problem. I cannot seem to get a printer configured and work. All of my windoze boxes print to the print server fine. Before taking FC3 for a test drive, I had Mandrake 10 installed. Configured a printer no problem. Was printing in minutes.
Intel NetportExpress 10/100 - ip 172.16.0.100 HP Laserjet 4000
1) what to I need to enable (protocol) on the print server? 2) what kind of network printer type (CUPS-IPP, UNIX-LPD, WINDOWS-SMB, etc), do I need to setup? 3) can I use the default hplj4000 postscript driver? The screen says "recommended"
select networked jetdirect as quque type run this command as root.
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.
on HP printers that are jetdirect.
