Question Configuring Fedora core 6.0 to Windows Domain

Hi guys , I am new to Linux. I want to configure fedora core 6.0 as a print server in windows domain.
I need to be able to allow certain users to print to printer A , Certain users to print to printer B and so on.
My question here is , how do make Fedore Core linux 6.0 part of windows domain and also give access to windows users.

Any help will be appreciated.

Before anything, you should realize that FC6 is legacy now and won't be receiving any updates. In a server environment, you are much better off with centos - if you don't plan on security updates, make sure the machine is not exposed to the internet and locked down wrt tho local network.

You need to make sure samba is installed to use a windows network. Read the documentation.

If all the printers are actually connected to the FC6 box, then CUPS can share them out as windows printers. It is unusual that you need to restrict access te printers by user, since most people just use the printer closest to them.
