"kcmshell printers"?

(or in KDE, Settings->Printers)

I just tried it, connecting to a printer on a Windows XP machine on the 
network and it seems to work OK...

I haven't been using Thunderbird so I can't help you there, but KMail seems

Firefox works fine here, and konqueror seems to work OK though I haven't 
been using it much since I started using Firefox...

Not sure what "SAB" means but I have been using kedit and nedit and tried 
Open Office Writer a couple of times and they seem to work OK...
