    In the comments of part one there was a replacement suggested on (page 5 of comments I believe) this by The Eclypse. After using it I had no further issues. Just change lines 1 and 3 as suggested.

    Is there anyway I can connect a printer to this server and then be able to print from windows computers?

    Yup, you'll need to install cups and samba and follow some fairly simple documentation. Your only problem could be this guide is using a fairly out of date version of Ubunutu (?) so some of the steps could be different.
