Just converted my Asus EEE PC to Linux

Hi all!
I am new to Linux and this forum. I just upgraded my Asus EEE PC from Vista to Linux Mint. It came with WinXP Pro installed, but I thought it would be cool with Vista. Wrong! It made the laptop slow and hard to use. With Linux, it makes it run like a new computer! Oh, I am sooo happy! I just have one problem now - making my new Linux box print to my home network. I am not done looking for the answer in the forums yet, so I may find the answer on my own. But if someone can point me in the right direction, I would really appreciate it.

What set up do you have for printing?
do you have a wireless printer so all machines can see it through the Wi-Fi? maybe in your search it will be beneficial to specify the printer model like 'setting up <your printer here> in Linux Mint 13'

Good luck to you and thank you for join us
