Printing Linux WS to Windows Server

I have a Windows 2003 Standard server with Printers shared out on it and have installed Print Services for Unix on this Server.

I'm using a Slackware 10.2 Workstation with the KDE interface.

I need assistance on how to Print to Printers installed on the Windows server from the Linux workstation.

I see lots of questions about how to print to a linux server from a windows client but not the reverse.

I'm pretty much a newb to linux and I know that slackware isn't the most newb friendly but I am trying to learn it because I heard its the most Unix like and I tend to learn things best the hard way.

What you are looking for is CUPS ( common unix print server ) and SAMBA ( enables linux to connect to windows networks )

the two can work together to allow printing through a windows shared printer.

search this site, or gooogle for it, there is lots of available documentation.
