MAC and Windows networking

I have inherited a small office with a small windows Ethernet IP network (3 PC's and a hub), which works fine. There is also one separate user with a MAC laptop running OS 9.2.1 which is connected directly via its RJ45 port to the jet direct port of an HP 8550 printer using a Cat 5 crossover cable. This too works fine but obviously we need everyone to be able to share such a fancy printer!

Am I right in assuming that all we need to do is connect the printer and the MAC using straight through cables to the Win network switch/hub, install the 8550 drivers  and then the PC's and MAC will all be able to share the printer??

Hopefully a YES is all I need but any guidance much appreciated.

Yep. As long as everything is on the network, the Mac will be able to see the printer.
