apsfilter is VERY good at helping one set up an SMB printer, but:
1. I don't know if RH9 uses cups or some other different-than-lpr setup,
in which case trying to install/use apsfilter could be bad
2. apsfilter accepts your NT (SMB) username and password as clear text and
I don't know where it puts them, or how it stores them there.
