If the HP LJ 2100 is being sent data through ethernet, such as through a jetdirect card, then you do not need to do anything different for the PCs that are wireless.
What -would- be a challenge would be trying to take a printer with a USB connection and move that printer off of it's host PC and attach it to a wireless connection; you might, for example, want to do that if it is inconvenient to have the printer sit close to the PC. There are some wireless print spoolers that will work for some models, but not for all. Attaching a multifunction printer (such as one that offers printing, fax, scanning and copying) to a wireless print spooler is particularily problematic: there are not many models yet that you can do that with and still be able to use the fax and scanning features.
