Question How do I install a printer in SUSE 10.1

I have a network with four XP computers and one officeJet 5600 and one computer is a dual-boot with SUSE 10.1, and I was wondering how to get the printer useable in Linux. It is connected to another computer on USB001 and has all the drivers that I think it needs. When I try to add a printer, I am asked to find a PPD file. I've used linux for one week. I don't even know how to find the file! Any help?
