Yes, Samba (specifically smbclient) can shuttle jobs to CIFS printer
queues, doesn't matter if they are on a workstation, server, etc... The
"hard part" is hooking that into the local print system, either by
filters if you are using some LPD/LPRng derivative or "backends" if
using CUPS.  That is a platform specific issue (and I don't know
anything about SCO's printing subsystem).
