Not meaning to sound like an arse, but for school, you should seriously think about reading the red hat books (you can get them online). It is certainly an effective use of resources to ask someone else, but learning-wise, well...

In particular, you would want to lookup the lp commands like lpc, lpr, lpq......
Also, check into redhat-config-printer
