If you don't already have them sharing files you want to make sure they have the same workgroup and all firewalls are off (windows and any 3rd party) then make sure the PC that hs the printer has file and print shring installed and enabled and follow this walkthrough -

(you can ignore the number 4 since your all using XP no driver manipulation is needed)

Lastly once you have it all working then you need to work on the firewalls to allow printing to work (if you use software firewalls).
