Question Need help with printer on wireless network

I have two new iMacs, set up in one room, with an airport base station located in a different locked room with other computer equipment. The wireless connection works fine. I have a HP printer hooked up to the one iMac. I have turned on Printer Sharing on the iMac connected to the printer. What do I have to do so the other iMac can share the printer?

I know ideally I should connect the printer to the base station but the way the rooms are set up make this impossible. The computer users can't access the locked room.

IF repeat IF this printer is bonjour compatible, then you need only "add" the HP as a "shared printer" from the other Mac. It will show up in the list of possible printers when you click "add."

Not all printers work this way, and of course the other mac still needs the full set of HP drivers for this printer before it will function correctly.
