Printing from Linux to a Windows printer

Is it possible to share a local printer on win XP (USB) with linux ??. If this can be done how do I set this up. I have samba file share setup and working.

yes it is, have a look at this

it's a debian howto,but it should be generic enough to get you going.
good luck.

found something a little more specific.

good luck.
