The easiest way is to use system-config-printer. Install the package if you don't have it and run the command 'system-config-printer' (as the root user of course). Then click the "New" button and choose to add a Windows shared printer (via SMB). The rest of the parameters are easy to understand from the dialog and you should be able to locate the printer easily in the network.
