Rick has good advice - I fall for that one every time I install Cygwin
on a fresh win install.
If your printer is lpr compatible you can get LPRng from www.lprng.com -
I did the initial porting and as far as I know it still should compile
"out of the box" with the following settings:
./configure --with-userid=18 --with-groupid=18 --disable-setuid
Let me know if you have any problems.
