An Idea for FC4



Hello Sirs,

      I don't know if anyone has suggested this before, but I was curious about something:  in the next release of Fedora Core (FC4), during the installation of Fedora, why can't there be an automatic detection and configuration of printers, just as there are automatic detections of other devices during installation?  I have had difficulty in printing over the network with Fedora Core where the printer is attached to a Fedora Core 3 box. I have Googled all over the internet where I have found info about setting up printing with CUPS, however I have not been able to print over a small network.  By the way, I know that printers can be automatically set up in other distributions of Linux (Mandrake, for one) that have allowed me to print wirelessly and though Ethernet over a small network. 

     Anyway, this is just a suggestion.  Are there any plans to allow for the automatic detection and installation of printing in Fedora Core 4 when it becomes available?
