The easiest way would be a MAC compatible printer server. It will plug into an available ethernet port on your LAN. All the computer need is Mac/windows drivers. The other plus is both computers do not have to be turned on.
There are software solutions but I am not familar enough with Mac to recommend one. It will involve a program on your windows computer converting the Mac computer's request to print. It works I just do not know haw to explain it.

all i want to do is share the printer on my windows desktop with my mac notebook. i run a links wireless system and from what i understand is....that i should be able to share if i just click on few boxes. all the drives should be ready to go. i have the printer icon working on my mac it just says that the host network is busy and it will try again, so far i don't know what is throwing a busy signal at my mac printer icon, it shows the print job in progess but the desktop pc is busy???
