linux printing to a XP printer


Hi all

I am new to this, so please be gentle. I have just installed FC2 on a PC - used a server install. On my network, running through a TrendNet router, I have an XP machine that is connected to a HP1200. I also have a Magicolor printer on the network as an IP printer.

As none of the printers are directly connected to the Linux machine, do I need SAMBA? or can I get my linux machine to print to the printers in some other manner?

Thank you in advance for your help.
Robert.
