I have to apologize to you. I was so set on the answer I did not pay
enough attention to your question. Now I see that you printer is not a
network printer but locally attached to you FC machine. You indicate
that you can't print from your Windows machine. I assume the MS Word
or Notepad were on a different machine that is running Windows. So as
I understand it you want to use the FC machine as a print-server for
your Windows machine. Are you using samba to do the printing? Can you
print to the HP Laserjet 1300 from the FC machine?

I am not at all sure how print-service from  a FC machine is made
available to a Windows machine. If I had realized that was what you
were doing I should have shut up. But I still think the answers to my
questions would be helpful.
