    Linux machine connect the shared HP printer from the windows LAN.

    Hai
    I am Arul Kumar have some tips to How Linux machine connect the shared HP printer from the windows LAN.

    To share files and printers in SuSE 9.3 with KDE 3.4, use the YAST configuration utility. Simply open the program, enter the root password when prompted, select Network Services in the left pane, and click Samba Server. After YAST detects your configuration, enable or disable your preferred shared resources (such as printers and home directories), click the Start Up tab, select On--Start Service when Booting, and click Finish. The next time you boot Linux, your file and printer shares will become available to other computers on the network.

    Try it out Dude...
    Bye..
