It's funny that you mention wireless printing, because I JUST asked 
Uniprint last night for the printer settings. There is an article on 
getting Pharos printing to work at a different school here: 
http://www.byui.edu/wireless/linuxprint.htm Basically, you set up CUPS 
and print to the printers like any other printer, but you need the 
settings (name, IP address, etc) for the respective printers before you 
can do anything. The printer drivers from their website are not going to 
run in Linux, even under wine. As soon as I get wireless printing to 
work, I plan on publishing a how-to on our website. I am waiting for a 
reply from them.
