Hi guys (and girls) :)

I have a problem :(
My problem is, that I can't connect to the shared printers on my school.

In Vista, you just chose "run" and typed " // ". Then you entered your username and password.
Then a window with a logo for each printer was shown on the screen (like a normal folder), and you could choose the printer(s) you wanted to install and use.

I use Ubuntu, 8.04 - 64-bit

My question is; how do I connect to this location/folder/printers?
The address is:

Thanks in advance for the help :)

go to system->administration->printing
then click on NEW Printer .. then select Windows Printer via Samba and enter ip there

It doesn't work out :(

I just need to choose some weird kind of printer-drivers, or something?

There are more than one printer on the // address... The address is only the "folder" for the printers?

How can I view all the printers in the folder?
