Right-click on the Printer in the Printers and Faxes section of Control Panel and go to Sharing.

Select to share it and give it a name.

Both computers must have the same workgroup name, to simplify the task if nothing else.

From the other computer you should now be able to see it in My Network Places/Network Neighbourhood. Double-click on it, it should ask you if it can set it up on this computer. Let it do so.

Should now be able to print to it.
