Probably the easiest way to do this is to enable "IP Printing" on the NT box and just treat the printer as a BSD protocaol compatible device. If you're running NT Server this can work either way, if you're running workstation, I think that this only comes with the "IP Printing" client services so the printer will have to be physically attached to your Linux machine.

You can enable "IP Printing" by adding the service in your "Network Properties" window. If you've now copied your I386 directory from your windows CD to your Hard disc then you'll need your media to make this change.

Hope this helps,
