I do plan on running the printers with lp5250d but everytime we connect the 
printers to the computers they start acting up and printing a page of L's or 
some other random characters. We have used the printers under Windows with 
iSeriesAccess and it works fine, we are just trying to accomplish the same 
thing with linux. So if anybody has experience getting IBM printers to work 
under linux your help would be greatly appreciated.
