Printing to a Windoze Printer with CUPS

This part was surprisingly easy once I had samba running. I was prepared to start grokking the printcap system, and printer daemons and the like -- when in fact, all I needed to do was apt-get install cups and all its peripherals:

apt-get install cupsys cupsys-bsd cupsys-client foomatic-bin gs-esp a2ps

(These are just all the things you might have installed in Section 2.1, minus the samba packages themselves.)

CUPS then has a lovely little interface for you through your browser.
