Sharing Linux printer with Windows clients

Dear Forum,

I want to share a USB printer connected to RedHat (v 9.0) machine to Windows clients.

I want to know how to install a USB printer using CUPS.

Can anybody suggest me how to setup and configure Linux machine to work as Print Server so that Windows clients can use this printer (In both Windows network and Linux network).
