    I have to get at least the printer function
    operational for a MFC-860 hooked up on
    a linux box.
    I do not know if the MFC-860 uses the same
    driver as the MFC 4600. If so forces could
    be pooled.

      Thomas,

      I did a little searching about your printer and have not gotten the information I wanted.  From what I see, the printer you have is a european version with not muc info on the brother web site.  The closest US match I found was the MFC-9200c.  What I wanted to find was what language the printer was using.  The 9200 seems to have ppd files in the W2K driver.  If the printer is similar to the one you have, maybe you can use the ppd file in linux.
