    Having managed to network 2 PCs together running XP, and sharing a printer attached to a parallel port on one of the PCs, I thought I would turn my attention to sharing a USB-attached scanner on the same PC. But I can find nothing in the Windows Help material anywhere about sharing scanners like that. Is it not possible?

    Most cheap scanners can't be shared without 3rd party software. Here's a link to a bunch of 3rd party applications, let us know which one you pick. I may need to do this too, might as well let someone else do the legwork! :D
