connecting PC printer to Mac network?

here`s the deal ....i have never touched a mac system before in my life , i am a Pc man. the situation i have is that a client of mine is runnig a mac network , i want to sell him a Printer which has all the drivers for PC s/ware (i.e. win nt ,win 95)
can any of you guys or girls tell me how i can do this ?
i was thinking that if i connect a PC to the mac network and run win nt on it and appletalk and connect the printer to this PC then the Mac could print to it , but what do i do for a driver for the mac`s???
any help would be great (keep in mind i know "0" about Mac`s!!)

Yes NT is able to simulate almost every pc printer for the mac. On the mac side the laserwriter (standard) driver will be used since NT simulates a postscript printer even it isn^t one. There are some problems if you want to print out color from the MAC side. It depends on which printer you have.

If you want to connect the printer directly to the MAC use powerprint.
