add printer in Slackware 9.1

I have a Linux Slackware 9.1 box and I want to install a Seicosha SP-2415 printer but I don't know how to do this from console.
Could someone help me?

Did you try using CUPS?
As root, type cupsd at the prompt.
With a web browser, go to localhost:631.
Follow the directions.

This is the easiest way to do it, I have found.
