Printing to network printer

I am new to Linux, and I have Mdk 10, and it is currently on a LAN with computers with XP and ME. How does one go about printing to one of those printers shared on those Windows machines?

LinNeighborhood does show the printers that are shared, but I can't seem to do anything with them.

I have an Epson C62 attached to an XP machine that I print to with CUPS and Samba. Not sure about LinNeighborhood, since I don't have it. But if you have CUPS, open up Mozilla and go to http://localhost:631 and you can set it up from there.
