hi, i'm a newbie here.

i did a search, but couldn't find an answer to my specific question.

i have a Dell desktop running Windows XP with SP3.
i have an Epson Stylus Photo R280 connected to it via USB.
i have a cable modem and linksys router.

i'd like to be able to print wirelessly on that Epson from my Macbook which is running OS X 10.5.8

is this possible? any advice on how to do this?

thanks for your help.
