At work our LAN is in a star config, about 9 'puters with 98 or XP....one of them has NT 4.0, serv pac 6. It is not a server, just a workstation.

I am trying to add it's printer to my 98 workstation as a network printer.

In the Add Printer Wizard, when I try to add it, it asks for a network password.

The NT workstation boots with no password (blank box) .

What do I need to do? I know zero about NT. :confused:

Have you installed the W98 specific drivers for the printer or are you trying to use the NT ones?

This is the exact error

RUNDLL32 caused a general protection fault
in module KRNL386.EXE at 0001:0000a300

We have several different printers around the shop. There is another of the same type printer at another workstation that my station already accesses.

I assume that the wizard is trying to pull drivers from the NT to my 98 station. I do have the Epson disk.

???????

Duhast,
yer, looks like it's trying to use the NT drivers, use the disc to install the printer locally, when it asks where the printer is, point it to the network shared printer
