G4 on home network needs to print to a Windows Shared Printer

i have a home network with 2 printers, both installed on a WIN XP workstation and shared on the network.  I have a g4 running OS 9.1 and I can't figure out how to print to the shared printers.  It can access the internet and macping the router so I know it's on the network properly.  All of the other Windows based PCs on the network can print just fine.  

What do I need to install or configure to get this working?  Please let me know if you need any add'l info to assist me.

With Mac OS 9.x, you will need a third party product, such as Thursby Software's DAVE,  to print to Windows hosted printers:  http://www.thursby.com/products/dave.html
