Set up the printer as "shared" on the windows computer - Provided you have printer-sharing isntalled you should just be able to right-click the printer in the printers folder and select the sharing options.

I've not used RedHat, but I summe that there is a printer control panel somewhere - You should scan the network for Windows or Samba printers.
