Unhappy Need help installing printer in fc7

I need help installing a network printer on FC7.
I'm pretty new to Linux, so please be as detailed as possible.

What kind of a printer is it, USB-connected or what?

Basically you just connect it, power it on, open the printer management dialog (found in some system/administrative/configuration/equivalent menu) and use a graphical wizard to do it. Another way, if you're using CUPS (Common Unix Printing System) which you probably are, is to use the CUPS web interface: open a web browser and the address (or http://localhost:631 should do also), and the rest should be self-explanatory.

Need additional information.
1. Make / model of printer.
2. What do you mean by network printer? Printer attached to another computer or printer connected via ethernet to the LAN.
3. If printer is attached to another computer what is its operating system.

Welcome to LinuxQuestions. Providing detailed information will help get answers faster.

Right after I posted that, I found another forum on your site that gave me a website to install my printer.
