OK -  but is PhotoPrint available for windows at all ?  The web site, if 
I'm looking at the right one seem to imply not ?

So how is the 'rip like environment' accessed from say Scribus under 
windows ?

All academic for me perhaps as there doesn't deem to be a GutenPrint 
driver for the Dell 5110cn printer.
