Is your printer local on network? Basically, what you need is:
1. A line in /etc/rc.conf:
2. An entry in /etc/printcap. See "man printcap" for more details.

If it's set up, you will be able to print from the shell like this:
$ lpr

You may also need to correct your /etc/printcap file later and install
the filter:

Anyway, start from here:

Good luck!
