    I have not any success yet on finding a written solution to use a connected Canon printer that's installed on my 24" iMac, and set up the printer profile as a network printer on my XP machine.

    The iMac of course has the printer sharing and everything turned on, and I have SMB sharing enabled under file sharing (although I don't know why I need to).

    Any help?

    Here's what I did. Enable printer sharing under the Sharing section in the System Preferences on your Mac. Then install Bonjour on your Windows XP computer and use the Printer Wizard included with Bonjour for Windows to add your printer.
