How do I use a SCO Unix/System V printer that's shared on a Windows network?

Curently, I don't know where you can get the latest version of Visionfs : the link below used to work but probably does not now. The 3.1 version of Visionfs ( latest version is always available from Sco's Vision Site (link dead, sorry) ) has a new method for installing printers. The following command adds a new Unix printer called "winprint" and prints to a Windows share called "HP5" on the machine "Win98_17":

 /usr/vision/bin/visionfs print --install winprint Win98_17 HP5
