I recommend just sharing the printer on one of the PCs on the network, preferrably the one you are also using for network storage. See the section titled Sharing Printers in my book Upgrading and Repairing Windows for more information. Scott.

Look up Printers in the index for a list of the applicable pages. Scott.
