I just migrated my network from Novell to NT 4. I have one printer the HP COlor LaserJet 4550 that none of my win 98 machines can print to. I can ping the printer IP address but cannot connect to it all of my 2k machines can print to it fine. Any ideas?

Check the Access Control method on the server.  Is it set to Share-level?  If not, try that.  Start-Settings-Control Panel-Network-Access Control.

Share the printer on one of the 2K computers and then access it from 98 computers through the 2K machine.  Also check ensure the users have the appropriate accounts and permissions on the 2K machine that is sharing the printer.

If your printer is attached (LPT1)to one of your win2k workstations, acces it through a share. If it is networked, make sure you have installed a TCP/IP printing service on your win9x systems. Microsoft doesn't offer one but there are many sharewares or third parties available.

As you said, the printer has been configured with an IP address.  Windows 2000 has native support for printing to IP based printer but Windows 9x not.  If you go for IP printing solution, you either get IP printing support from HP or you use a 3rd party software on Win 9x machine.
