You might want to try sharing it as a CUPS printer.
Try searching the internet for "share CUPS printer
with Windows" or something similar.

I'm having trouble getting my printer to share to my
computers on my network via Samba. The funny thing
is that I had this
set up a coupla years ago on FC2, and it was a piece
of cake. Now,
there's nothing but problems.
I turned on Samba and browsing for printers in
Samba. My Windows
machines can now see my Linux machine via the
Network Neighborhood, but
not the printer.
I turned on printer sharing in the
system-config-printer utility, but
that doesn't seem to make a difference.
Here's the printer part of my smb.conf
comment = All Printers
path = /var/spool/samba
browseable = yes
# Set public = yes to allow user 'guest account' to
guest ok = yes
; writeable = no
printable = yes
public = yes
what does your cupsd.conf look like?
Deny From All
Allow From 127.0.0.1
Allow from All
Interestingly there's no </location> at the end of the file. (that part
was automatically generated by system-config-printer. So, does that
entry even makes sense?
what about the permissions in
cupsd.conf with regard to the individual printers? what does your samba
log say. what does your cups log say?
The error log says:
I [12/Feb/2006:04:02:21 +0100] Sending browsing info to ffffffff:631

is it possible that there is an ipv4 vs ipv6 conflict here?
also, i f you try to print through samba to cups from a windows machine,
what does the error log show in both samba and cups?
