is it possible to hook up an ethernet cable from a pc that runs win XP and connect the other to a pc that runs win7 and share and print on the same printer?

In Network Neighborhood/Network can you see the other computer? Are both PCs using the same router to connect to the Internet? If so, they are on the same network.

To set up printer sharing, use this guide:

or here:

Then from the XP PC, you should be able to browse the network to the Windows 7 PC and locate the printer from there. Use the link below to setup the XP PC:
