OS X Tiger & Windows Vista Printing for Dummies?

I’m still searching around the Internet for the proper way to connect to a Windows Vista Home printer from Mac OS X Tiger.  A lot of the resources I’ve found are telling me to use programs like Bonjour, Samba and Networking Neighborhood based methods but none of them want to work for me.  I’ve been floating around all Mac and Windows based forums, even the official Apple Support forums located on discussions.apple.com and I’m still unable to find anything that will make this whole printer setup work.

I’m usually pretty good at troubleshooting things, what the heck am I doing wrong?  Is there a book anywhere that gives me ALL of the possibilities?  I know there are more “For Dummies” books than I can count!
