    It should be as easy as just adding a network printer. Ok. crap first sentence.

    What you will proberbally need to do is (on the Mac) go into

    <the hard drive> --> Applications ---> Utilities ---> Printer Setup Utility ==> choose the printer ==> click on Show Info ==> note the printers location

    From there on the Windows machine, just add the printer as you would a normal network printer.

    Hope this has helped
