Sharing printer PC and Mac - Mac Networking

I use Mac OS 10.2.6 with a Brother HL1440 laser printer attached to the USB port. My husband uses a PC Win XP. We are connected together through the ethernet ports. He wishes to print on my printer. I am sure that one of the advertised features of OS10.2 was that this would be possible and have enabled printer-sharing and Windows sharing on the Mac. I can't make the PC cooperate however ! Please can someone help ? Thanks...

    I'm doing just what you need to do, having an Epson connected to a Mac
    and printing to it daily from my Windows XP system used for work. I
    know of two web sites that offer information on how to do this.

    I've used the first one on two separate occasions and have never used
    the latter. But as I understand it, what you want on the second one is
    the IPP topic.
