Okay I have 2 printers and 3 computers and I'm trying to figure out how to set up printer sharing. I can't get it to work/detect on other computers after setting it to share though. The following items are what I'm trying to use:
Laptop(XP Pro):Canon PIXMA iP6210D
Computer(Vista Home Prem+Archlinux):Canon PIXMA iP1500,Vista is the primary use.
Computer(Archlinux+XP Pro):No printer,Archlinux is the primary use.
Netgear WGR614 v6 but I might be getting a Linksys(just a basic one with wireless) one soon. Not sure about the model.
Could anyone help me or have step by step instructions to set up the network because I'm sick of having my brother come on my computer to print a report?

Put them all in the same workgroup, go to the network panel in Vista and enable printer sharing. On the computers connected to the printers, go to the printers control panel and share them.
