    Tiger2,

    go to system preferences and open up print & fax, choose the + button to add a printer, then enter the ip address of the computer that the printer is connected to and choose the printer driver type.

    You can get the ip addresses of the computer by going into your router under the dhcp settings.

    you can also get the ip address on the pc itself, go to run and type in cmd.. at the prompt type:
    ipconfig
    this will give you the ip information of that system.
