Easiest way IMO would be to use CUPS and configure it as an SMB printer. Least that's how I got my windows printer on my home LAN working.

I assume you're talking about a printer connected to a remote windows box?

i think the /easiest/ way to configure a network printer would be to stick it directly into the LAN and use CUPS to access it as an IPP printer over TCP, since that would get rid of any workgroup/domain hassles
