Printer(attached to windows machine) configuration

I have my printer attached to Windows machine and is shared,
Now how when I configure printer in my linux machine

I tried through Yast then it gave me following error:

There was a problem

You specified an invalid queu name on the print server,
the printer server does not accept print jobs, or the queu
on the printer server does not accept print jobs

Return from the remote server:
PING ...

ping statistics...

The print queue and the host name is already taken by the system itself, when I pressed locate SMB server.
lookup for printer queue.

How can i possibly configure printer?

Any help will be highly appreciated.
