installing a printer

I am trying to install a stand alone printer. We have a printer currently linked to our network and we are using UNIX. We would like the stand alone printer to print from UNIX and not from the network printer. How do I make this work? I don't know much about computers so a step by step detailed description would be nice. Thanks!

thanks, but...

Thank you for the response. I saw the message that you posted before. I am so new to UNIX that I would need a more detailed description of where to go to fix this problem I have. More or less, I guess I need someone to take my hand and guide me through it. I am probably asking for something that I cannot get, but I thought it was worth the try. Thanks!

There is a big difference between reading FAQs and READMEs and asking specific questions based on initial effort and work vs. asking without any initial study and reading.

Everyone must do their own homework. We don't do homework in the forums. Everyone is expected to at least search and read before asking questions. This enhances the experience of everyone and makes for a much better community of users.

Also, when people do their homework, all senior members are more than happy to take the time to answer and help.

In my opinion, this is the most important message of the day. Everyone must read the READMEs and FAQs and ask specific questions afterwards.
