I am using FreeNAS on my lan to do some file/iTunes sharing but I'd like to add printer sharing to it so that I can stop using a second (aging windows) system. I'm not familiar with BSDs but I am comfortable with the shell (I'm a Debian admin) are there any good tutorials for setting up printer sharing (cups?) on FreeNAS?

I haven't tried it yet (will do next week when my NAS box arrives), but this forum post explains how to set it up. A couple of other step by step guides: one and two.
