there are situations, where cups is not necesary: A classroom, not 
networked, where only one (the best) PC is connected to a printer. All 
other put there files on a floppy and bring this to the "printserver" - 
so called "sportshoe-network" :-) This is reallity in College Abbe Loya 
in Kinshasa f.e. works fine ;-)

Although the above sounds a bit like a joke, there is a serious kernel 
in it: I would recomend to follow the minimal-install aproach from 
Rodolfo, since we have then minmal-base for both server and desktop. 
Desktop related stuff can be postinstalled by a script run automatically 
at the end of slinky. Just my HO.
