I saw references to something called cups-pdf but that looks like it's just a virtual printer.  I need to be able to print to real printers from inside wine.  Is there some special config I have to set up?  Something I need to enable?
Have you configured your printers to work from MacOSX and have you 
tested them?

If not, you will have to do so.

The printing system used by your Mac is called CUPS.  cups-pdf is a 
driver that interfaces between the pdf print system installed on your 
Mac and the CUPS print system so you can print pdf files from programs 
running in Wine.
