It's best if you don't call people names, like "geeks", when you're asking for help.

And before anyone can help you, you need to define the problem a little better. Are you able to print from the workstation that has the printer attached to it? What kind of printer? Connected how?

If you get CUPS up and running on the workstation where the printer is attached, you should be able to set it up on the second workstation, and it'll 'see' the printers that are shared out.
