The easiest way is # apt-get install printtool 
It is a Redhat product, so I don't know about it's security, like
having the password for print server in clear text somewhere.

~# apt-cache depends printtool
  Depends: file
  Recommends: <wish>
  Recommends: gs
  Recommends: enscrip

Try it without samba, samba-common, smbclient first, and then
add them if it doesn't work.

You can use any of the hp laser jet filters and have it work, 
and if your HP 5000 supports postscript, it will spare some
processor time on your machine.
