you might like to actually ask a question next time...

I assume you have problems or no knowledge on how to print to a windows shared printer? just run cups on the client machine and configure the cups server to relay to the smb share on the windows box, e.g. smb://server/printer there are plenty of cups wrappers for gnome, kde etc... or just connect to http://localhost:631 for the direct cups web interface.
