	WOW!! What a difference! I did that on machine #2 (only, so far).

	When I click on Printers, I see what the machine thinks are 
*nine* : my wife's downstairs is there twice, once as itself and once 
with "-fax" appended to it. All the other seven are my one machine, once 
as default with my name for the machine it's on, but no IP; the others 
have either an IP or some other indication where they are; I'm seeing it 
double on #1 (as default and not), and double on #4 (with its same 
correct IP both times, not together); sometimes it shows as published, 
sometimes not.

	I tried to print the router's table, with IP and MAC numbers, 
from a browser (Konqueror, despite the fact i run Gnome); but it just 
asked me if the printer were connected.

	Iiuc, I should go do the same on the other two clients (machine 
#3 and #4, no printer attached), but *not* on #1, which does have the 
printer, and must therefore be acting as the server. Right?
