I don't think Windows will let you share a network printer.
For example, selecting a network printer on my desktop NT
box and clicking Sharing... gives me the ability to change
the way it's shared on the _server_ it's attached to.
In fact, I know of nowhere in Windows' networking where
a network resource can be 'shared through'.
