Sharing a printer

I have a home network with 2 computers. One with mandrake 9.2 and one with windows xp. I'm trying to share my printer connected to my linux station to my windows computer. I go into the "PrinterDrake" and i click on "configure CUPS" and the option "the pinters on this machine are available to other machines" is checked. I even tried adding the xp machines ip address to the "sharing of local printers" screen but i still can't see the printer on the xp machine. Any ideas on how i can share this?
