FreeBSD Handbook on Printinghttp://www.freebsd.org/handbook/printing.html
In order to use printers with FreeBSD, you will need to set them up to work with the Berkeley line printer spooling system, also known as the LPD spooling system. It is the standard printer control system in FreeBSD. This chapter introduces the LPD spooling system, often simply called LPD, and will guide you through its configuration.

Linux Printing HOWTOhttp://www.linux.org/docs/ldp/howto/Printing-HOWTO/index.html
This is the Linux Printing HOWTO, a collection of information on how to generate, preview, print and fax anything under Linux (and other Unices in general).
Linux Printing Usage HOWTOhttp://www.linux.org/docs/ldp/howto/Printing-Usage-HOWTO.html
This document describes how to use the line printer spooling system provided with the Linux operating system. This HOWTO is the supplementary document to the Linux Printing Setup HOWTO, which discusses the installation and setup of the Linux printing system. The material presented in this HOWTO should be equally relevent for all flavors of the BSD operating system in addition to the Linux operating system.
LPRng HOWTOhttp://www.astart.com/lprng/LPRng.html
The LPRng software is an enhanced, extended, and portable implementation of the Berkeley LPR print spooler functionality. While providing the same interface and meeting RFC1179 requirements, the implementation is completely new and provides support for the following features: lightweight (no databases needed) lpr, lpc, and lprm programs; dynamic redirection of print queues; automatic job holding; highly verbose diagnostics; multiple printers serving a single queue; client programs do not need to run SUID root; greatly enhanced security checks; and a greatly improved permission and authorization mechanism.
Ghostscript is the name of a set of software that provides:
An interpreter for the PostScript (TM) language, with the ability to convert PostScript language files to many raster formats, view them on displays, and print them on printers that don't have PostScript language capability built in;
An interpreter for Portable Document Format (PDF) files, with the same abilities;
The ability to convert PostScript language files to PDF (with some limitations) and vice versa; and
A set of C procedures (the Ghostscript library) that implement the graphics capabilities that appear as primitive operations in the PostScript language.
Samba is an open source software suite that provides seamless file and print services to SMB/CIFS clients.

FreeBSD compared to Linuxhttp://sites.inka.de/mips/unix/bsdlinux.html
In recent years the enormous public success of the Linux movement has overshadowed the availability of other equally powerful and freely available Unix operating systems.
This paper aims to introduce BSD as an alternative to Linux, to provide basic information, and to clear commonly encountered misconceptions.
Unified BSD package Collectionhttp://www.openpackages.org/
FreeBSD, NetBSD, and OpenBSD each have a similar system with most of the same software applications present. Each group has made many enhancements to the system to meet their needs and improve the product. FreeBSD has roughly 3700 software applications in its "ports" collection. OpenBSD has around 900.
