We used to use the router, which had a parallel port attached to it and
it became a print server, but she had to use the printer as a scanner,
so bye-bye to that. <boy am I glad i spent the extra couple bucks on

I would suggest using CUPS. You can use the KDE Printing Manager to set it up, and it can find a Windows shared printer. It is quite straight forward using the Printing Manager, which is the old Kups. That is my current printing arrangement, printing to a Windows shared printer via the network. HTH.
