Bob,

The ideas are REALLY starting to roll now :-)

As far as printing goes, I've mentioned this before on Midrange-L; Starting
several years ago, I have taken "old 386/486" PC's and configured them with 
"good
ole" PC Support/DOS with 3 print sessions each and we are driving various models
of HP lasers through the network. This has provided departmental "AS/400"
printers with GREAT print quality, where they would have been hard to justify
normally or where they already had a LAN attached HP...
