I am using Fedora 12. I am connected by Wi-Fi to a large network with dozens of printers (the network is running CUPS). How can I set up my fedora box to "see" those printers so that "print..." file menu option works?

Also, I know the address of the CUPS server; when I go to System->Administration->Printing and I go to Server->Connect I can connect successfully and I can see all the many printers on the network. But I haven't figured out how to print from my favourite programs yet.

Many thanks,
Alex.
