No; you need a Windows machine sharing these printers for that.
The network card is just a physical connection, like parallel or USB, nothing more.
You can either install these printers directly as *local* printers for the clients by connecting them to a TCP/IP port during the New Printer wizard, or you can install them (locally as well) on a machine acting as print server and share them from this machine. The latter will allow you to browse to the printers from other clients.
