    To slightly rehash an issue I brought up a few weeks ago, I was having problems getting any of my limited user accounts to be able to print. The main culprit is an HP Photosmart P1100, hooked up as the local printer to my Windows XP PC. By trial and error, I was able to fix that problem by going into printer properties, clicking on the "advanced" header and setting the option not to spool but to print directly to the printer. A little later, I noticed that this caused another problem. This P1100 printer is also used as a network printer to a Windows 98 system hooked in thru a wireless network to the main XP system. Prior to changing the printer properties to print directly to the printer, there was no problem printing to the network printer from the Windows 98 PC. Once the change was made however, that is no longer true. Now whenever an attempt is made to print to it thru the Windows 98 PC, an error comes up indicating that an access code is invalid, and asking whether I want to set the printer offline. Further investigation led me to a Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 260737, which almost sounded identical to my problem. I tried their suggestion, but it did not work. Is anyone familiar with this situation?
