>(3) Linux always shows the job in the print queue after I hit the "print
>test page" button or the print button on openoffice.org writer.
>(4) The HP G85 printer never prints when I'm booted in linux.
What happens if, on the command line as root, you run "lpr 
<some_test_text_file.txt>"? Or as non-root? And is there output to 
/var/log/messages (via tail -f while doing this) while running the lpr 
command? I'm thinking a semi-direct command line tool might show more 
information about errors.
