    well, you know the name of the machine on which the printer is installed and the name of the shared printer, e.g. "myWin98" "myHP". From your XP machine, clieck on "Start" and select "Printers and Faxes". This pops up a dialog box - click on "Add a printer" from the menu in the left panel. This starts the wizard -
    • click Next.
    • Select "A network printer or a printer attached to another computer" and click Next
    • Select the second option - "Connect to this printer..." and put in the PC an dprinter names as "\\myWin98\myHP". Click Next
    • It'll ask if you want to use the printer as default - choose "yes" or "no", and click Next.
    • Click Finish

    this seemed to have worked. The only problem I am having is printing from the internet. The only way I can print from it is to copy and paste the contents into word. What could be causing this? I appreciate any help.
