Install network printer on outsider laptop?

A guest wants to use his company laptop to print on our network. How is
that done if his computer is not part of our domain? He would need no other
netowrk access than to the printer.

I tried adding the printer as a network printer using \\10.10.x.x
I also added it as a local printer then tried to add a TCP/IP port of
10.10.x.x but neither recognized the IP address.

This procedure worked on XP, but this is a Vista laptop.
How is it done in Vista?

First, this "guest" laptop needs to be on the same TCP/IP network.

How is the network printer connected onto the network and how is the
print jobs managed?

The printer is on a LAN, with a Windows Server 2003 print server.
The guest laptop is connected to the LAN.

Since it is on a Windows 2003, you will need to consider setting up a
"guest" style account.
