If you have windows 2000 on the machines you can asign the Printer an IP address in the same range as the rest of the computers (or make it DHCP [make the router asigen the address])and print over IP. Asigning the address can be done with the front pannel, MIO or Network set up. OR if the hard wire desktop is NT4 you can do much the same thing then share the printer out to your laptop.

Same would apply set up printer to print IP
1st get IP address of printer ( should be in test page) Making sure that its the same subnet (IE 192.168.1.x)
2nd set up printer using Local but setting up New TCP/IP port giving IP address of printer
3rd Start Printing
