	Oho! Then all those who said "get rid of telnet" really *meant* 
"get rid of telnet-server." Right?

	So does that mean I should run "yum install telnet" on all 
machines? With the server on none? Or only the client on only the machine 
with the printer? What responds to "telnet 192.168.a.b 631" on a machine 
with no telnet at all? 

	For that matter, what about "ssh 192.168.a.b 631" instead? I am 
at least relatively familiar with ssh.

	If the KVM switch's printserver really was what suddenly crippled 
my #1 machine, it's certainly worth a lot of effort setting up another 
way. (And yes, I still realize that we don't know for sure; that's still 
just the working hypothesis.) At least, it's worth it to me -- even 
though, at the moment, I'm getting more confused rather than less so ...
