Question Connect my RH 9.0 Linux system to a work MS Network

Well, I'm trying to be a bleeding edge newbie and make a switch from MS XP to Linux on my work machine. The printers in my office are all hanging off of the work MS Network. When I booted up XP, I logged on to a domain on the work network that would give me access to the printers. How would I go about logging on to that domain from Linux?

Someone pointed me to Samba, but what I can figure, Samba is more oriented to the other direction (MS to Linux). I want to go Linux to MS.

Thanks to any that can give me a clue...

Samba is both client and server for communicating with the smb protocol.

If you want to set up the printer then you are probably better using the CUPS web interface:
1) Make sure cups is started:
service cups restart
2) Access the admin page
3) Follow the onscreen instructions for adding a printer - when choosing the conenction type select "smb"
