Sharing a PC (Vista) printer with a Mac (OS X) wirelessly!

I have had some issues networking my PC running Vista and my MacBook Pro running OS X Snow Leopard. With a lot of help I am now able to access all of my shared Mac files on my PC.

The Problem:
My PC is not sharing any files or the PRINTER with my Mac. On my Mac when I go to Go - Computer - Network there is nothing there.

Ultimately, I am unable to print anything from my Mac because it is hardwired to my PC.

Any ides wold be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
