See my earlier reply to vitamin - configure all printers, network or
not, as CUPS printers and tell your programs to send their output via
CUPS. CUPS can handle directly attached printers, network printers and
shared CUPS printers on another host. CUPS printers can also be shared
transparently with Windows boxes via SAMBA.  

When you run a Windows program under Wine, the printer selection
dialogue should show the list of CUPS printers with the default printer

Check your CUPS setup and use the 'Printer Test' to make sure its set up
correctly. CUPS is much easier to set up now than it used to be. The
Gnome printer management system works pretty well.

You can also check printer operation from a terminal window with a
command like:

	ls | lpr

which should list the contents of your current directory on the default
printer or

	ls | lpr -P LJ5

where 'LJ5' is the name of a CUPS printer.
