Windows 7: How to share printers with Macs?

How to share printers with Macs?

In both Vista and XP, I could explicitly setp the printer share name on the network and also what printer driver to use (PCL, PostScript). My PC has two printers, an Epson inkjet which doesn't support network printing from the Mac because it only supports PCL, and a Brother HL5240 laser printer.

Under XP/Vista I installed the BR-Script drivers on both the Windows and Mac boxes, shared the printer as //Skip-PC/HL5240, and have no problems printing. Does anyone have a clue how I might do this in Windows 7?

Thanks,

OK, I figured out that I had to click on the printer and get to the printer properties page. On that page, I could change the share name and also setup the printer security. After that it worked fine.
