Assume you are using xp
Click on printer icon in control panel and the printer should be listed there.
Right click on the printer and choose sharing, make sure Share printer is selected
Also make sure you go into windows firewall in control panel and go to the exceptions tab and make sure the File and Print Sharing is checked there as well.
On other PC’s in LAN, click on printers icon and choose Add Printer and choose LAN or Network Printer and it will search for printers that are shared in the LAN – If found, choose that printer and follow screen instructions to install
