It is quite involved. The way I did it was set up samba to see the machine 
that is  sharing the printer. Then I installed cups and set that up to print. 
When I could print from cups via samba I then ran the OO printer wizard and 
used the default settings (print to lpr)..printed a test page and was away.

Not sure how Mandrake handles this, sorry.
