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 .
