Sharing a printer between Win98 and Win2k PCs

I would like to know about printer sharing between Win98 and Win2000. I have a printer connected to a Win98 PC and would like to share that printer with a PC running Win2000, but the latter does not see the Win98 workstation on the network. What can I do? Is there any trick that I am missing?
This is a common problem. First, check to make sure both systems have IP addresses and can PING each other. If you can't even get past this step, then TCP/IP may be misconfigured.
