need a printer to share between 2 computers

I am looking for a colour laser to share between 2 computers both running windows xp. Have thought about attaching the printer by ethernet cable to my router but dont have a clue about what else i will need to do to get my computers to talk to it (one connected by cable to router, the other wirelessly connected).

Printer must be cheap on consumables and will expect it to print about 400 pages per day max so printing speeds should not be too slow and it must be durable, so dont mind spending around £400. Will be printing mostly black and white but some colour too (not photos)

Bamboozled by all the choice!

Thanks, I was really struggling there

PS I think you might like a Bugatti Veyron, but it does go a bit faster than specified - hope that helps.
