thank you. but the FAQ only explained how to print if one know the
printer's network share name.  i think my problem firstly is find out
the printer name, that is not explained in the FAQ.  does anyone get
know how to know a printer's share name if the printer is shared via
Windows's domain?  i am sorry for such a question, but the printer is
automatically installed on my computer, might via a network startup
script, so i lose the chance to get know the details. the only thing i
can do now is to play with the printer's properties dialog.

thanks in advance.
