Question CUPS and Shared Printer


I have a Windows XP Pro box with a shared HP printer connected to it. On my other box I'm running OES Linux. How can I set up CUPS so I can print to my shared HP printer. I have tried \\computer name\printer name but that doesn't work.

In a nutshell:
Use the CUPS web interface to add a printer.
http://localhost:631

Select manage printers
Add printer
Add name etc.
Select type of printer.
device: windows printer via samba
uri: smb://servername/printershare
