If you've got Samba 3.x, the Samba online docs give lengthy instructions
on how to set up a printer. It goes on a GREAT length. On a RH box the
docs can be found in /usr/share/doc/samba*/docs/htmldocs. Point your
browser at the file index.html in that directory and follow the links to
the printing docs.
