Login as root, then do a 'su lp' and remove the fax job. Also, you wrote
that you are using RH 7.0 which comes with LPRng, so you really should
change the entry in your global section of the 'smb.conf' from
'printing=bsd' to 'printing=lprng'. If you need help setting up 'sambafax'
there is now a new page on it mentioned in the HylaFAX HOWTO (section 5.6).
Especially for RH >=7.0 which comes with LPRng I have described the
necessary changes to get it working. See my sig for the page.
