I'd have to concur. I had massive problems with lpr on RedHat 6.1 and an
Intel NetPort. I put on lprNG and things started working.

And _I_ suggest upgrading to lprNG - my former employer (with 10

installing lprNG on the Samba server - in sharp contrast to the lpd hangups
leftover print queue files (hundreds of megs, at times) which lpr left us
