thanks, i guess i wasn't being clear. if i bring
another Mac onto the network, and try to print from
it, i'll see all the shared printers and i can choose
whichever one i want.

if I have my FreeBSD machine, how do i see these
printers? maybe its there but i don't know about it.
when i go to the CUPS admin page to add a printer, at 
i get blanks for name, location, description. but i
don't know about any possible printers, i just want to
see a list that i can choose from. 

the CUPS manual isnt clear on this, it just says if
your running OSX then everything will work. but i have
no idea how to find the name and address of any
printer that happens to be on the network.
