    This may be a silly question, but do we have to install the printer to be shared
    on the computor that wants to share it?

    Yes. First just try connecting to it. If both the sharer and sharee have the same OS, it will probably ask you if it's OK to copy the driver from the sharee. Tell it yes, and it will install.

    With different systems, there may be a problem getting the correct driver for the sharer; if so, try doing a regular install before taking the printer back to the sharee and connecting from the sharer.
