    Hi Guys
    I have two pc's connected with a belkin network kit. It consists of 2 cards and a length of cable. The shared internet (broadband)works fine.
    I have the main pc with the printer attached, and I have told it to share the printer. however, when I go to the second pc I cant see the printer, and when I go through the wizard to find a shared printer it says it cant find it..
    I have typed in the name of the printer correctly but it still cant find it,

    Both pc's are running xp home
    Any ideas ???

    Cheers

    Gus

    Hi
    I tried the first option with no luck.
    I have the files on the cd rom, but how do I find the directories to put them into ?
    Cheers

    If you use the link I posted, there is a little batch job that copies them to the correct folders included. Then, you just go into network properties and install the NETBEUI protocol. No additional configuration required, just run. :)
