Does anyone know of a way to attach my PC's printer to my laptop?

Heading over to University street to print up single sheets of paper for a DOLLAR each and every time I need to print something is becoming tiresome, inconvenient (and expensive)!

ETA: Before anyone asks: I tried plugging it in directly but it won't let me print. It says I need the software CD, which is looooong gone (my printer is like, 4-5 years old!) There must be a way of doing this without the CD, right?

what kind of printer is it?

Lexmark 2200. It's been out of production for awhile so you can't find it on Lexmark's website. I've been downloading random supposed Lexmark 2200 drivers off Google, but so far none of them work or are what they claim to be. :(

Apparently it had something to do with 32-bit versus 64-bit (I think). However, I was able to find one that worked. :)

Thanks again though!

Ah no, I forgot to mention that, no it's not a Mac. But I plan on my next laptop (which I plan on buying soon-ish) being a Mac. :)
