Sharin a printer in w2K so a Mac can use it

We used to have Macs here and I know we shared printers with them. I am using a Windows 2000 pro SP4 system to share an HP laserjet 4050. I have gone to add remove programs / add remove windows components / other network file and print services. I see only print services for unix. I have gone to the poperties for the nic, select install services, expecting to see file and print services for macintosh, but it is just not there. I feel rather foolish having had many Macintosh computers on our network some years ago, but I have gone to the items I remember and they are not there. As always any help will be greatly apreciated

Oh and now I feel even more foolish! In the past I have not used server based printers with Macintosh. I have always started the service on the printer and printed to it directly. I am using an older version of Mac, 8.6. I'm sure the newer OS is much more seamles.
