Yes. Both CUPS and LPD work. As I recall, I simply removed the
definitions from my /etc/printcap file and configured CUPS to make
use of the departmental CUPS server. However, I was using RH7.0 and
as far as I know, CUPS is not really part of the RH7.0 distribution. I simply
recompiled the CUPS sources from RH8.0 and installed the rpm.
