windows printing through localtalk

I am planning to add a Windows NT Server and a few Windows 95 machines to a mainly Macintosh network. At the moment all the printers are on a localtalk network. Is there any way the windows 95 machines can print over a localtalk network? Other than using PCMaclan...

Yes, if you install File and Print Service of Macintosh on the NT Server and create a printer queue on the NT server for each on the printers you want the Windows 95 machines to print to. When you are creating the queues be sure to select AppleTalk printer port other wise this will not work.
Check out Apple's soon to be released Appleshare IP 6.0.  It allows you to connect Window clients similar to WinNT.  Pretty smooth too.  Also you may run into a few problems intigrating Localtalk with Ethernet....you nmay need to check into a Localtalk - Laserwriter bridge.
