Assuming that:

1.  you have a hub/switch
2.  you have a NIC in your linux machine
3.  you have 2 NICs in your win machine
4.  you have eveything cabled
5.  you have your interfaces configured correctly


then the easiest way to "see" your windows machine (with the exception of
ping) is to install linneighborhood, which will give you a network
browser similar to "Network Neighborhood" on windows.

Setting up your printer after that is pretty easy (see dman's response).

I have no idea how to proxy/masquerade network connections on windows
boxes.
