connecting to a printer over a network
I have no idea where to start and I can't find anything to help me out.
I'm running openSUSE 10.2, the Window$ box is Windows XP SP2, and they both connect to the network via wireless.

Why don't you just connect the printer to the Linux box and share the printer with CUPS?"Really, I'm not out to destroy Microsoft. That will just be a completely unintentional side effect." Linus Benedict Torvalds

Would it be easier that way?

Frankly - I don't know. I never tried to print from a Linux box on a printer connected to a windows box. At least I know it's quite easy to get a printer working with CUPS on Linux. Just install CUPS and then you can print on the printer from Linux. It's some configuration stuff you have to do on the win box to use this CUPS printer which I forget every time. Just go to this page which describes how to define a CUPS printer in windows. It's a German HP but the instructions are written in English. Give it a try"Really, I'm not out to destroy Microsoft. That will just be a completely unintentional side effect." Linus Benedict Torvalds
