Mandriva Printer and Partition sharing

I have just switched over to Mandriva Linux on my PC, so I'm very new to this. I have everything running pretty smooth. But I have a PC upstairs running Windows 98. I was wondering how to share my printer and hard drive partitions with the Windows 98 PC. I'm using and router also. Could anyone explain it for me.

The program is called SAMBA. After you install it and share a directory or two, make sure that the workgroup name is the same on both machines. Mandriva MCC, the system configuration tool, will take care of most all this for you. Don't forget to open up your firewall on the windows machine as well as the mandriva machine. Samba is included with the Mandriva CD's.
