Printer Sharing


How would I go about sharing a printer so that my laptop can print to it? My desktop is running Mandriva 2005 and is connected directly to the printer, and my laptop is running Windows XP Pro SP2. I know how to share a printer, if it is connected directly to the windows box, but I've never done it with Linux. Help anyone?

Use samba. Browse http://www.linuxquestions.org/ . I'm sure you'll find an answer.

That's where I'm at.....-_- That's what I'm doing.... The only thing I found was about "file" sharing.

There's a tool named swat, which is very useful in order to configure samba. Just remeber to save setting before changing page (it's web broser-based).
