How to install a network Printer

I have recently set up a wireless network to 2 laptops and to a desktop (ethernet connection from XP desktop to wireless router, broadband modem to router). I can access the internet from all 3 computers, but I am unable to share any files.
The laptops run on Windows Vista & the desktop on XP. I can view the map of the network including the XP desktop (had to download software patch from Microsoft for this). I want to use the printer attached to the desktop as the network printer; however I cannot do this. The Vista message is that it cannot find the printer. I cannot see how to do this from the laptops or from the desktop. Please can you advise?

You will need to allow printer and file sharing.

Use the windows help to see how to do this...
