You seem to be tackling many problems at once.
First get the network printing to work, and then OOo.
Also, from what you wrote below, I assume you use CUPS instead of Samba
for network printing.
Oo seems to need a commandline input and
this is what I'm starting with and also where my confusion begins.
A few questions,
Which package is lp part of?
If you are using CUPS, cupsys-bsd will give you the commandline
printingcommands (so-called BSD-style) like lpr, lpq, lprm.
'lp' is the name of the default printer in unix-systems.
So if you have cupsys-bsd installed and named your printer lp, regular
programs (and OOo) should give you no problems.
[Errors when printing]
From the web-interface, can you print a test-page?
Also it would help to know the details:
1. To which computer is the printer attached?
2. On which computer is cups running?
3. Why is Samba being used?
