In my Lan, I have PCs with Win95/98 a NT 4.0 server and an IMac. The HP (2100-PCL6) printer is connected to a Win95 PC and there is no problem to print document from all the other PCs but it does not work from the IMac.
Is there special softwares/component which need to be installed on the IMac or on the PC?
Thank you in advance for your help.

Does the Mac see the printer at all? Are you running TCP/IP on your LAN? Did it ever work?

I would doubt that your Win95 PC is advertising on the Appletalk network.  You will have to setup the Mac Printing software on NT and create a shared printer to do this.
