browse printers on printer server with web interface

hi there,

i'm trying to setup a cupsd print server on a windows domain. All my client machines are XP pro and are joined to my samba/openldap PDC and i want to have a web interface setup that anyone on the system can access and add a printer to thier machine.

I've seen it work in a windows 2000 domain, there is just a printer web interface that users can just click on and add printers, is there something like this in linux what will work for windows clients?

i've looked endlessly at the cups web interface but i can't seam to get access to it other than at localhost.
