OK, thought about it a bit, and I guess a dinghy is a bit more maneuverable, costs a lot less to power, and can work great as long as you aren't out on the high seas, or in a war.
It will fit in the garage, too. Not sure that's what you meant, but that's just my 2 cents.
Anyway, thank you to both of you and to smartagc. I have it running on my lsmipsel test box right now and it works fine.
So far, it seems like a really nice no-fuss-no-mess arrangement if you already have printing set up on your laptop or desktop. Works well from any of our Macs or from my Ubuntu box.
A basic init script wasn't too hard to put together so that the daemon starts at boot w/ other services like firefly, and it seems to handle it OK whether the printer is plugged in before or after the LS is booted. It just works.
