Samba works well with MacOSX/Linux.

But for printing, do you use CUPS?  That may be the way to go to get that 
working.  You must set the mode to raw mode I believe (for cups on the macosx 
side).  Do that by launching the Cups config of iBook in the web browser.  I 
forget the port it runs on though :)  631 I believe.  So localhost:631
