Sharing Printer for Use on Windows

Hi, I have successfully installed my OKI printer and now I want to share it on the network so I can print to it from my Windows PC. I have enabled SMB and also allowed it as an exception in the Firewall settings (on the linux box), but I just can't find the linux box in the network from windows. So the result is that I can't install the shared printer in the windows machine. I'm pretty new at this linux thing, any help would be great. thx so long.
