You first need to check if the printer is compatible with Vista. Then, if it is,Install the printer on one of the machines. Once it has installed, go into printers and right click on the printer itself, then select Sharing or Sharing and Security and allow the printer to be shared. You may have to switch on file and printer sharing before you can share the printer. Then, go onto the other machine and go to install printer. In the dialog window that opens, choose network printer and then search. When the printer appears in the search area, select it and choose install. The system will then download the appropriate drivers from one machine onto the other through the network and install the printer. This assumes that you have both machines connected to your home network and file and printer sharing is turned on, on both machines. To use the printer over the network, the machine the printer is connected too MUST be turned on.
