Hi John,
The procedure is exactly the same.
The only diference is the device uri.
If it's a local printer then you should have something like
parallel:/dev/(printer device)
If a samba printer smb://server/printer
Maybe the best way to do it is using the web interface of cups.

Best regards,
Bruno Guerreiro

Subject: [Samba] printer services

I have a question regarding printer support/services.  Does Samba
support shared printers directly attached to a Windoz or Linux machine?
(i.e. attached via a parallel port or USB port to either the Samba
machine or one of the Linux or Windoz boxes).

If so, how does one configure Samba and/or the other network machines to
  configure the printers to make them reachable to the rest of the
network?  I've spent some time going through the Samba doc and also the
CUPS doc...but, it still is not clear to me. Seems most of the printers
that are discussed are (seem to be) network printers.  Clarification and
pointers to useful articles are appreciated.
