Printing from windows in Linux printer

I have a HP Photosmart 7260 printer connected directly to my Linux box, and works fine. I've shared through samva with a windows machine but there is where my problem begins.

I've printed just a test page from my XP box sucessfully. Then I try to print from word and nothing happens. I check CUPS through localhost:631 and it tells me that impresion has been succesfully but really nothing happens to HP printer.

Any idea would be really apreciated.
