I hate printing

When I first installed RedHat on my desktop system, I fought long and hard to get my printer working. Now that I’ve upgraded to FC3, not only can I no longer print, but attempting to start cups locks up the system so hard I have to physically turn it off. Why, why, WHY is printing so darned hard in Linux? It drives me buggy! Now I’m going to have to move my printer over to my Slackware box, and set up printing there. Or something equally goofy.
