You need to be running SAMBA to share your printer with windows. Not to conversant with DeadRat, but it should give you somewhere the ability to start SAMBA as a service at boot time. Then share the printer as a SAMBA shared resource.

No you don't need Samba, plain CUPS will do. In Windows, you configure your printer as "http://<serverip>:631/printers/<cups printer name>", that should do. Have a look at this or google for "Windows IPP".
