    You need to go to Apple.com and download "Bonjour for Windows". Install Bonjour in your Windows VM and you should see the printer.

    Make sure printer sharing is enabled on the other PC

    you shouldn't need Bonjour to share printers between windows PC's - in the windows XP printer installation wizard, it should allow you to select a Network Printer, and then browse printers on your network - as long as you have shared the printer on the other PC (right click on it,and click Sharing)

    however, if you use Bonjour for windows, make sure it is installed on both computers.
