OK, I know what I'm trying to do is wrong, but I don't care. I've got my laptop on a network and I can do everything I want except print. The admin won't change the printer in my office so that it's set up for sharing. I've used print manager and it can get access to all kind of printers all over the place except for the one in my room which isn't set up for sharing. Of course, I've got limited privileges on the network, so I can't tick the sharing box. How lame. I'm going to try booting the computer into safe mode next time I'm in the office and see if I can change things that way. If anyone has any other suggestions (using shell somehow for instance) for making my life easier I'd really appreciate it..
