    I have broadband (cable) and have recently installed a router to which I have both of my computers connected. What is the procedure in accessing the printer, now connected to my 2nd computer (Win 98SE), from my primary computer (Win XP Pro)?

    Set up print sharing via:

    On the host machine = Win98se: START/Settings/Printers

    Right click the printer you wish to share and set up sharing.

    On the Client Machine = WinXPpro:

    1. Add Printer and go thru "Adding a network printer"
