Webmin stores its printer list in /etc/printcap.local but RedHat 7.3 uses
/etc/printcap (with printtool for example)

    It was intentional for webmin to use /etc/printcap.local .
    On redhat 7.2 and
    above, the /etc/printcap file is re-generated frequently
    from a separate
    data file, and always has a line to include
    /etc/printcap.local so that
    printers created by webmin will work.

    However, webmin cannot edit printers set up by printtool, as
    any edits to
    /etc/printcap would be overwritten by redhat's programs :-(
