Default IP Printer Setup


I am working on moving my customers away from MS Servers for file and print sharing. I would like to use FBSD and have it installed on one of our test systems.

Current setup: Currently I use MS W2K servers with HP printers and jetdirects. The printers are installed on the server and then shared on the network for client systems. I do this so the server can take over the spooling workload.

My question is this: I have searched google for IP printing or network printing etc using unix or FreeBSD and cannot locate what I am looking for. Is it possible to setup network printers on a FBSD system? I know I can use SAMBA for the shares. Where or what config file needs to be altered with the IP address etc of the network printer?

Thank you in advance
