    I hate to ask the same question all-over (I'm sure of this :D), but I'm having trouble understanding/setting-up my home network so that I can print on a printer that is connected to another desktop. Do I need to install the drivers etc... or can I somehow just discover it on a (my) home network. Any help will be appreciated! Thanks again

    On the host computer you need to enable file and printer sharing and share the printer. Then on remote computers you need to connect to the shared printer. Since you have menitioned no OSes here is a general guide: Set Up Your Home Network, Windows 7 Edition

    Sorry for no O/S, It is WinVista, and my network is only for my daughters' puters to connect to internet. One of my daughters have a printer, and mine is currently not working, so I would like to connect to hers.
