Marcel Gagné writes another installment of his series on interoperation between Windows and Linux with a look at using Samba to share a printer connected to a Windows machine.

"For this little demonstration, I am using the notebook computer sitting across from me; hooked up to it is a HP Laserjet 5L. The printer has already been configured as a shared printer on the Windows system. In other words, this PC has the Client for Microsoft Networks loaded and, using that PC, I have logged into my workgroup (of which my Samba server is a part). Then, I brought up my list of printers (click Start, Settings, then Printers), right-clicked on the printer I wanted to share and chose Sharing from that menu. What you should see now is a menu like the one below."
