Hi, my house is currently networked and I have a printer in another room of my house connected to the network. The printer is an HP OfficeJet 6300. How do I set the printer configuration up so I can print from this? Thanks.

The tool to configure printers is (run as root):
system-config-printer

i got to that, but I don't know how exactly to set it up. I tried a few different things and they didn't work :(

Ok, then in printer config tool mentioned above, I would do 'New Printer', and select the AppSocket/HP JetDirect in 'Select Connection', and enter the printer's IP as 'Hostname'
