Question Sharing your printer to Vendow$ Users

Hello I have a Mandrake 9 box that is very stable at the moment!!!
My son wants me to share my Brother Laser Jet (1440)printer through our Workgroup- He uses 98 (Games)- Is there a simple way to do this in Linux?
I have samba up and running and can see his machine fine.

Talk about how bad M$ wrote software-- We have a Epson C 60 that will run like a top in Linux- but for some reason we CANNOT get it to run in 98 even with all the updated drivers- Of course bill and company claim no fault of there own-- we just wrote this crappy stuff.
Anyway if you could help I would apreciate it.

Thanks once again,
