Trying to set up a Linux Print Server
Check it out, here's what I'm trying to do, I'm trying to take an ANCIENT HP Desktop I have and set it up as a Print Server for my two Windows 7 laptops, so I don't have to come connect a USB cable everytime we need to print something. I want to do a very basic Linux install on it and then after the install not have anything other than the printer hooked up to it (eg no mouse, monitor or keyboard), I will have the desktop hooked up to my modem/router combo via an ethernet cable.
Can someone please help with this, I have no idea what Linux distro I need to use and any other software I might need.
The printer I'm planning on using with this setup is a Cannon photo printer/ printer/ scanner / copier and I would still like to be able to use the scanning functions with the Win 7 Laptops if at all possible.
