Question printing + samba + slackware

I use Slack 8.1, and I have a Windows NT server attached to a printer. This iis a network printer accessible from Windows. How do I make Slack print to it?

You might want to research a program called CUPS. It is in the extra directory for Slack. You will also need the espgs package to convert postscript. Perhaps it will support printing through a SMB connection.

And welcome to LQ!
