Solaris 8 printing problems again

On Monday, 10/14, I sent email to this list describing Solaris 8 printing
problems, and I was quickly sent the solution to my problems.  On
Thursday, 10/17, my print server's disk stopped completely, I replaced the
disk, reinstalled the system and printers, and thought everything was
working correctly.  However, no one can print to the printers served
by that machine rom client machines.  I can serve the printers on some 
old hardware running solaris 7 and the printers work correctly.  However, 
jobs sent to the printers hanging off the Solaris 8 system completely
disappear, no messages, no output although it does work to log on to the
print server and print from there.

I modified the syslog.conf file on the print server to log all the debug 
messages in a separate file.  A small portion is enclosed below.  I can see 
the print request being shipped from the machine peloton to the print server.
I don't undserstand what is meant by cf message being ignored (peloton is
a redhat 7.3 system).  Close to the bottom are the lines where the job
is scheduled, but as I said, there is no output.  And I have no idea where
to look for errors other than in this debug file.  There is nothing in
messages, syslog, etc.

I'm beginning to believe that somehow the OS did not install correctly, even
though I can find no errors in any logs and that I should just bite the
bullet and try to reinstall again.  One clue that I have that the system
did not install correctly is that pkginof reported that SUNWnisr was installed, 
but it was not completely installed because there were only 4 files in 
/usr/lib/netsvc/yp.

Thanks for reading this, and I apologize for the length.
