    Setting up a printer through CUPS

    Hey, I run suse 10.0 if that makes any differences. Im using CUPS so it shouldnt matter. Anyway...

    I have a Canon Pixma MP500 hooked up to a USB1 port on a windows computer. I am connected through a simple wireless router (this computer and the computer that the printer is connected to are hardwired). How can i set up CUPS to use a smb connection? The setup should look like this:


    and mine looks like this:


    home is the name of the network and lauren is the name of the computer that the printer is hooked up through. How can i find the sharename?
