Smile Printer Sharing

I have a Dell Inspiron 530s desktop with dual boot, Vista and XP Home. I also have a Compaq laptop operating with Vista that is wireless connected to my DSL modum. The desktop is hadrwired to the same modum. I have a Brother printer connected to the desktop via USB cable. My problem is printing from the laptop while the desktop is operating with XP. Nothing happens, no error messages on ether computer. If I am operating the desktop with Vista, the print command works just fine. I have configured desktop Vista and XP to share this printer. What can I do to get laptop to print through the desktop operating with XP?
