Sharing Printer attached to Ubuntu Box


I have been trying to setup my printer for sharing through CUPS on Ubuntu Breezy 5.10. I have tried to use the localhost:631 software but the administration tasks are disabled and they suggest you use the Gnome Printer Administrator, but there is no sharing dialog attached thereto.

How can I make the printer shared (in particular, with a MacOS 10.5 machine). I want the Mac to be able to use the printer attached to the Ubuntu box through CUPS.

Any help would be much appreciated!
