    To share printers across a network between Vista x64 and any other operating
    system do the following.

    Vista
    ------
    Click Start >> Control Panel >> Hardware and Sound >> Printers
    Click on Add a printer
    Select Add a local printer
    Create a new port >> Local Port >> Click on Next
    Enter the port name for the network printer (i.e. \\Computer Name\Printer
    Name)
    Select the printer from the list
    Continue until the printer is installed.

    Other operating systems
    ----------------------------
    Find the Add printer wizard and do exactly the same method as for Vista.

    With any luck your printer will already have printer drivers included with
    Vista and obtaining drivers for other operating systems if they are missing
    should not be a problem.
