can't connect ubuntu to windows printers

Hi guys,

I'm using Ubuntu distro, and for as the moment I'm having problem on how to connect to shared printers of Windows Xp and Windows 2000, though I can see them on the network but I can't see any shared printers on them, I really need help on this one guys, I'm a totally newbie in linux... just migrated a few hours ago... Thanks and more power...
