Sharing printers over multiple OSes

I know there must be a way to do this with Samba or something, but I am fairly new to linux, and wouldn't know how to set this up.

I have 3 computers on a network behind a router thats shares our cable internet. Computer A is running Win98se&Mandrake 8.2, Computer B is running MacOS 9.2&MacOS X, and Computer C, a laptop, is running Win98se. I have 2 printers, hooked up to the mac, and the laptop through a USB port. I want to know how I can print from the first computer in Mandrake to either of the printers on the computers running MacOS X or Win98se. I only need to print to one of them, not both, so whichever one would be easiest and least intrusive to the user on Computers B/C will be fine. Thanks.
