With Yast, do
System administration -> Network configuration -> Administer remote printers
where you will get a form to fill in with the name you want to give the
printer, the hostname of the printer system, and the printer's name on that
system. Then just print from your application by telling it the printer
name, or use lpr -Pprinter_name. Remember that both Framemaker and Netscape
assume that the printer is a Postscript printer and they send it Postscript,
so your company's LAN printer must be a Postscript printer - this is most
likely the case. If not, you'll have to set up what SuSE call a pre-filter
which is beyond the scope of this email - RTFM.
