Print Server

Hello everyone. I have a WPS54G Linksys wireless print server which works fine with my windows box. I'm hopinh I can get it to work with my slackware box as well, but I'm a total moron when it comes to this.

I've tried searching and have found nothing detailed enough for me yet. If anyone can help from the ground up, it'd be greatly apperciated.

the print server IP is

I'm not sure if the printer attached matters much, but it's a lexmark Z515.

Thanks in advance, you guys have been great so far!

You chose a not so linux-friendly printer, btw ... this may help
for the printers basic set-up (driver as such).

If that works for you:

Does Slack pick the Wireless device up as such?
If it does, and you're using CUPS as your print-system, it
maybe as easy as to

lpadmin -p <printername> -m <drivername> -v socket://
or, if the Linksys doesn't support this mode, maybe
lpadmin -p <printername> -m <drivername> -v lpd://
