If he just bought it there might be a chance is it network ready. Meaning it has a place to plug in a Cat5 cable. If not then you can hook it to another Pc like you have yours set up or he could get a print server. Print servers are little boxes you connect a printer to and it connects it to your network. Print servers come in wired and wireless versions. If you have a wireless router, wireless print server would be the way to go. They cost a little more but since you can set them up anywhere you have wireless signal from your router, makes them really versatile.
Hope this helps
