Mario,

In a nutshell this is what I do:

Install Jetadmin (the 11.0 version works on all 11.XX versions)
Install JetDirect.
Save your printer configuration through sam.
Copy the /var/sam/lp directory to your new system
Restore your printer config through sam.
Start the spooler.
Make sure your DNS and host files are correct so the system can resolve Name>IP

Your done.
