With Windows XP, you set up an IPP printer. I would think Vista
would be the same.

If the print server supports IPP, it is easy. Chances are that CUPS
will detect it. Using a lpr type print server is slightly harder,
but not much. Windows requires a bit more work. I would expect the
router/print server to support IPP, and possible a couple more
protocols.
