Step 1. Share the Windows printer out as you would normally.

Step 2. You will need samba and samba-client and printing packages installed on your Linux box.

Step 3. In 'printconf-gui' :

queue name = lp0
driver = whatever_printer_you_have

Share = \\servername\printername
User = valid_windows_username
Password = that_user's_password
Workgroup = workgroup_or_domain
HostIP= blank
Queue Type = Windows Printer (SMB Share)

Thanks KevinJ, That solved my problem and I didn't even have to ask! (Just did a search).
Odd thing is I also tried printing direct to the JetDirect network card and that failed. But printing throught the Windows server worked like a charm after following your settings!
Thanks
Steve
