Yes, that should do what you want. I have a similar Linksys Network Print Server with which I can print from any PC, without having to rely on a 'host' PC being on.

I have the Linksys PSUS4 click here which is easy to set up with the supplied software.

Running the CD, you set up the Print Server to recognise the model of printer that is attached to it and then install a "driver" in each PC to create the necessary Printer Port to use over the network.
