Hi

I have a Mandrake 10.1 on my PC, and recently installed an HP Laserjet 1100 printer on it. It works OK with the Linux, but it seems that the resolution has been set to 300x300, when it fact the printer is capable of 600x600 res. How can I change the settings to the higher res? I expect there is some kind of a config file which determines it, but I don't know where it is or how to find it.

It also seems to have set the toner density too high, which means that it would be using up too much toner. I would like to be able to change both settings, but don't know how. Your advice will be appreciated.
