If you set up cups on both machines, they should talk to each other and 
discover what printers are available.  I used to have a debian sarge box 
(just recently upgraded to etch) with a printer on it, and a debian unstable 
workstation running kde.  It just sees the other printer.  

I have also told the main cupsys on the (ex) sarge box to also recognise a 
windows printer which has been "shared" by my wife on here windows computer.  
SO my workstation can also print to that .
