How can I access Windows Vista printer from Ubuntu over the network?

I just installed Ubuntu 9.04 on my laptop and was able to share a folder on Ubuntu which I can access via Windows Vista, so I know the network connection works fine.

"You need Samba installed to be able to print on a Vista shared printer.
In your printer utility (System > Administration > Printing > Samba) go to browse for the Vista PC and that should work"
