Angry Linux Printer Installation


I am trying to use RPM Select ona windows PC to manage print queues from a SCO Linux machine. I am trying to start from scratch. The printers are all installed and shared on windows PC's and they print fine. What i now need to do is to be able to print from Linux computers which we access through SSH. How do i setup the printers in the Linux box and how do i link it to the windows RPM print manager and how do i configure the print manager coz there are settings like convert to text markup and remove LF with CR and stuff like that. Please ANY help is appreciated.

Thanking you in anticipation.

You'll want to read about Samba (access to windows) and CUPS (Linux/Unix printing system).
