Ubuntu: Windows 7 and Ubuntu server


Here's what I want to do.

I have an NEC 2000 series printer that is not supported under Windows 7 but is supported under windows XP.

Can I have that printer hanging off of a Ubuntu server and be able to access it using Windows 7 clients? (This means 5 family laptops) I want to get off XP due to dropbox and other applications no longer being supported.

Do I need something else? Samba?

Or am I in a hopeless chase for a config that simply isn't doable.

The reason I want to keep the NEC printer is it's indistructable and I have an endless supply of toner in addition to being a double sided capable printer. Oh, and did I mention I have lots of spare parts? Yeah, that too.
