Whats this Lie-nix Thing?

I want to use my Epson C82 as my printer for my Mandrake 9.2 machine. I have setup samba and can access all shared items on the Windows machine. The printer is shared, but I have not been able to print to it. I used PrinterDrake to attempt to setup the Epson, but it was not able to detect the network printer. I then set it up using the ip address of the Windows machine and the default port 9100. This does not work.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks blink.gif

It actually was the fault of my windows machine. Very strange. What I did was this:

1-on my windows machine I clicked on My Computer and then My Network Places.
2-then I clicked on Setup a home or small office network.
3-clicked next a few times and then choose the 3rd option in Windows XP which is labled OTHER
4-chose the first one on the next page which is 'this computer connects to the internet via network hub' which is my router.
5-clicked next and just followed the directions and named a new workgroup.
6-restarted the computer and then went in and went in and unchecked the Windows XP Firewall and restarted.
7-went over to my SuSE 9.0 Pro machine and opened up controls/peripherals/printers.
8-clicked on the admin button on the lower left and went into the Yast Admin panel
9-I then just click on Add Printer at the top and followed the directions for SMB(Windows).
10-I then pressed on Scan and it found the new Workgroup that I created with my Windows XP machine and the printer.
11-Finally, I just clicked on the +'s and it found the printer. I clicked next and just filled out the simple questions for the printer and did a test page!!!

I hope this helps everyone!!!!
