    I can't even get started on this tutorial. I've got Ubuntu 7.10 installed and I'd like to use it as a print server for two windows machines and a mac.

    Step 1 says:
    Step #1 - Installing CUPS Service
    # su root
    # yum install cups*

    I did that (after first installing yum) and I get this:

    Warning, could not load sqlite, falling back to pickle
    Setting up Install Process
    Setting up repositories
    No Repositories Available to Set Up
    Reading repository metadata in from local files
    Parsing package install arguments
    No Match for argument: cups*
    Nothing to do​

    Ubuntu's package manager is apt, so you should use something like
    apt-get install cups
    yum is for Fedora and CentOS.
