Sharing a printer from 7 over to Vista

I just reformatted my desktop with 7 and I wanted to share the attached HP PSC2355 wirelessly to my Vista lappy. I had this connected and functioning previously when the desktop was running XP but now I cant seem to get my lappy to connect to the 'homegroup' to find the printer. I found some other posts of sharing a printer on a vista machine over to 7 but not from 7 over to vista. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I've posted this stuff ad nauseam on how to share printers from W7 to XP and XP to W7

It will also work for VISTA macines.

Machines can be a mix of x-64 and x-86

replace the XP machine in this thread with your VISTA machine
