If your printer is attached to a linux computer, you are probably already using cups to handle the printer. If you are using windows, I cannot help you, maybe someone else can.

Cups can handle networked printers (this is what I use on my home network) as easily as local ones.

Cups options are set in /etc/cups/cupsd.conf
You may need to enable network connections here.
To access the cups interface http://localhost:631

Search for cups on this site or google, and you'll find lots of help, but it is not difficult to set up.
