Buffalo Linkstation - Printing

Hello again all.

Background: I was sad enough to flood my house with Cat5 and install a small Comms cab in my kitchen cupboard where all my IT kit resides. This is: ADSL router, Small Switch, Buffalo linkstation and Printer. The Printer uses a USB port on the Buffalo as a Print Server.

The Buffalo likes you to install the printer as a printer share by first browsing to the windows style share \\SERVER\ then connecting to the printer that resides in the share. Fine in Windows. But I don't know how to go about accessing the Printer from Linux. Obviously, the Data on the Buffalo is accessible when browsing to it, but not the printer.

I was wondering if anyone knew how I might go about getting SUSE to see the USB port on the Buffalo... It natively supports MAC and Windows only printing.

I've tried a few things, but it's not a normal IP type print server, so far as I can tell.

Scrap that. All sorted. Just set it up as a printer via Samba setup. In YaST. Seems to work fine.

Can a mod delete this post? Unless this info is helpful to others...
