START
RUN
type in "\\COMPUTERNAME" where computername is the computer that manages the printer.
Select the printer from the browser that pops up by double clicking it.

That should do the trick. That, of course, is the easiest way to do it.

You could also set it up to do IP printing, but that's a little more detailed.
