installing network printers

I have just installed Fedora 7 on a computer attached to my home network. The network has 2 printers, an HP Officejet 7310 All-in-one, and an HP Laserjet 1200 attached to a Buffalo Sharedisk NAS. These work fine with four other computers running Windows XP. I haven't been able to locate a clear explanation of how to install these printers for Fedora 7. Can someone point me to a document that explains how to do this? Many thanks in adavnce.

CUPS (Common Unix Printing Service) should be already installed.
If you find your print manager gui app you should see an option to select a print system ... CUPS should be an option.

CUPS supports many different protocols.
Take a look at your Windows to see if it is using LPR, TCP, etc printing.

You should be able to add a printer and the gui should ask you what (communication) type.
