First, make sure you've gone into the 'properties' for the printer on
the Windows side and set it to shared, specify a sharename, and give
everyone permission to it.

Go into the Administration>Printing menu, add a new "network" printer,
and select the dropdown for "Windows SMB" and then type the IP of the
computer it's shared off of, the shared name (goes in the "printer"
field) and any username/password requirements for accessing the printer
from Windows. The next screens should just be driver selection.
