Airport Extreme, printing, and PC's - Mac Applications & Software

I've got Airport Extreme USB printing working quite well. The Macs on my network are easy to configure: just look under Rendezvous and there the printer is. Anyone know if it's possible to get a PC to work with this as well?...

    Its supposed to work with Windows, you have to set it all up manually
    though. It uses a protocol I've forgotten the name of, but its the same
    one HP print servers use. Supposedly the Gimp-Print package impliments
    this and can be used to print from Windows. I've never tried this so I
    don't know how easy or practical this is.

    Are you talking about zeroconf?
