SCO upgrade and CUPS

When I was doing the Print Queues in scoadmin, I noticed that the menu would not let me 'Allow Remote Printing', as the option was in parentheses, and was not selectable. The mkdev command did not even show 'rlp' as a valid option. Being adventurous, I fould the command and executed it from its location, and it went through the motions as if it had indeed worked, and Remote Printing was set-up.
