right click the printer that you want shared, and select s"sharing".
Select a name for it and then go to the "security" tab. add the users that you want to share it to, if anyone then select anyone. Apply the Print permission.
Then the other users should have access.
Also you will want to load the drivers for the other OS's that may connect.

assuming that u hav "shared" the printer physically connected to the first computer,
proceed to second computer, go to my network > view workgroup computers.
double click the first computer, right click on the shared printer and select "connect".
a dialog box would confirm this. then to print from ur application, let's say msword, select the shared printer first. hope this is clearer. good luck.
