Having an AS/400 connected to an Ethernet network is new to me,
as is this whole sitation.  Currently, whenever something needs to
print, Netsoft is used to route the AS/400 output to the printer.  This
seems like an extra step to me, can't something like a Jet Direct
card attached to the network be used to handle the output directly
from the AS/400?  Would autoconfig pick up the Jet Direct?

Specifically, I need to send output to an HP 2930 printer, which 
looks like it handles ASCII codes.  What is the best way to 
accomplish this?    Is there a particular manual that addresses 
networks and printing?
