New to mac: need help in setting up HP Printer with Macbook pro and Windows XP

in Genius Bar edited January 2014

I just bought a new HP all in one and currently I have a Dell running Win XP Pro at home. I just bought a macbook pro. I need some help. I am new to mac as I have been a windows user for 9 years. Last time I tried installing the HP software on windows it gave me a lot of errors so I was thinking I will install the software on my macbook pro instead and then share it with windows machine. My questions are:

1. Is that possible?

2. if yes, once I install the HP software on macbook pro, how will I get it to share the printer so i can print from windows machine?

3. If I bring macbook pro to work, will the printer stop working or my wife could still print something from the windows machine at home.

Thanks for the help in advance.
