Question How to add a windows printer?

Hi everybody

I'm a Linux newbie and installed Mandrake 9 at home and I like it and everything works fine, but now I need to print documents to a printer attached to my brother's computer which use windows and I don't know if it is possible and if it is how to do it?

Thank you!

Maybe something with samba, but I don't have any experience with samba printing. It's possible though.
