If you're not familiar with iPrint, it is one of the nicest end-user technologies I think Novell develops. On Linux I find the technology even more appealing.... no rebooting, no restarting applications to use printers, nothing strange like that. With that said iPrint wasn't developed originally for a 64-bit platform, and wasn't developed for Linux first. That it works so well just makes me that much more pleased.
Even though the majority of Novell users are concerned with migrating NetWare to Open Enterprise Server 2 Linux, there are those users who migrated their NetWare servers to OES 1 Linux. This guide from Mike Faris was written to help those with OES 1 Linux migrate their servers to OES 2 SP1 Linux.
Frequent-contributor Mike Faris has rewritten one of his most popular articles, so you don't have to know about previous software packages to follow his steps. He has plans to write additional migration articles as well, which you will find here. This is what makes Cool Solutions so cool. Smart people, sharing. Thanks Mike!
