Mike - you may need to do the "add printer" steps and check you have the software for the printer installed on your XP machine.
worked beautifully. Is there anyway to use the printer with Windows 7, I am told there are no drivers available for Windows 7. I can now see my shared WIN 7 folder on my WIN XP boxes. I am looking for a way to allow the Windows 7 computer access on the network.
