I'm a little new at this so i'll try to explain enough to be comprehendable.

I have two computers on Windows 98SE networked through a Linksys 5 port switch. I have gotten the internet sharing and fill sharing working on both computers, but I have been having trouble getting the computers' print sharing to work.
I have gone through and added Netbeui Protocals to both computers along with TCP/IP protocals and i have enabled the File and print sharing on all of those. I can see the printer and install the driver on the networked computer (the one not hooked directly up to the printer) but when i go and print, it comes up with the message that it is having trouble communicating with the printer and it never prints. (by the way the Printer is a Lexmark Z55). The port path is \\computer\lexmark, and from what i can tell that is right, the driver is also set to the Lexmark driver. So i don't have a clue what's wrong. Please Help me!!

Thanks a bunch!

Did you go to printers in the control panel, right click on the Lenmark and click sharing and share the printer?
