from http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=806699 (it's not ubuntu-specific [but gnome-specific], so I believe that all will works in the same way whit fedora):

Quote:
Sharing Printers
Linux
- Click System->Adminstration->Printing (On the same menu as your 'start' bar or application launch bar)
- Setup your printer
- Select 'Share Published Printers Connected To This System' under 'Server Settings'

Windows XP
- Enter "LINUXIPADDRESS:631/printers" in Internet Explorer or compatible web browser
- Mouseover the big printer name and copy the text in the status bar, or if you're using IE right click -> properties and copy the link address. In firefox, you can right click -> copy link location
- Start the 'Add new printer wizard' under printers & faxes in the control panel
- Select 'Network Printer' and click next
- Choose 'Connect to this printer' and paste the stuff you copied just now
- Select the driver for the printer (install it from disc) or choose a generic 'color printer'
- Click 'Finish' to complete the wizard

Printer Share

But running FEDORA you want a FEDORA specific discussion. I suggest you google.
I found this: http://fedoranews.org/tchung/samba/

The general discussions will be SAMBA specific. SAMBA is what you use to export drive shares and printers to windows clients form a Linux or UNIX (or AIX or HP-UX, etc) server.

ADMIN: this reply has become redundant, I edited the link into the earlier post. This one may be removed.
(It will not let me delete it.)
