Sorry I must be blind as a bat because I cant find anything that has to do
with printing in the way I need it. I found other printing information as if
the printer was already installed but nothing on how to install a printer
that is being hosted by a windows computer. I also cant seem to find a
downloadable version of the CentOS manual.

CentOS Documentation is here...


I believe that you will find the information on setting up a printer (a
smb/samba printer) in the 'system administration guide'
