Connect to Printer on Win2k Network

Hi all,
I have a new MDK 9.0 box connected to my company's Win2K server based network. I can ping the server, I can get to the Internet through the firewall and I can connect so shares via the Samba client option in the MDK Control Center.

But, I can't print to a printer that is connected to the server. The printer does not have an IP, but is shared out by it's name. It is on the server which has an IP of

I gave the installation routine for cups all of the info such as the Server name, server IP, and selected the model of the printer. But, I can't print.

How should I begin to troubleshoot this?

You have to add a valid username/password combination to your smb server adress. it looks like smb://usernameassword@servername/sharename

instead of the smilie use a ":" and a "P".
