i finally got the Network thingie working and now i have another prob: I CANNOT GET MY PRINTER TO SHARE. :(

the printer is hooked up the 2nd comp in my son's room and it works great with that comp. but the main comp cannot get the printer to print any thing.............. i get an error message of "trouble communicating with the printer." and- YES printer is turned on - lol.

main comp - Win XP
2nd comp - Win98se
printer - Lexmark X83
<<<< comp's are hooked together thru a router >>>>

Rhapsody :D

i read another post concerning sharing printers and i followed the advcie that johnwill gave another member and it worked for me as well. it was the small thing that i was missing - one page was left undone for the sharing on the 2nd comp.
