I install the lastest version of wine in sUSE 9.1 and teh lastest version of cups.
I can't print to windows printers from any application running with wine.

I would like to know how < HAVE to configure wine for printing through cups to teh windows printers instqalled in it.

PD: I not have any problems if I print directly from cups to the windows LAN printers installed ... So my problem is how to configure wine for printing...

    Are you familiar with the Wine HOWTO? It has a chapter about printing:

    Actually, it should just work: The second link I gave you does state that Cups support is already built into Wine, and I can confirm this. I just installed Acrobat Reader 5.0.5 under Wine (also on SuSE 9.1), and all my Cups printers do show up on the print dialog, and I can send jobs to a Cups connected printer. Give it a try.
