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, the machines could print to it fine before the migration. I can ping the printer IP address but cannot connect to it all of
my 2k pro machines can print to it fine. Any ideas?

Are the 9x boxes using client for M$ networks as the primary logon, and do these accounts have permissions to print?

Your problem sounds like a JetAdmin issue. You may need to Load JetAdmin on your workstations. JetAdmin can set up the TCP/IP printer port on the workstation, where as Novell might have handled before the migration. Need more info to be more accurate.

On one of the 2K machines, share the printer, then connect the 98 computers to this network printer on the 2K machine and it should work just fine for you.

Oops, make sure the users have any applicable accounts and permissions needed on the 2K machines to have access to the printer.

I do have Client for M$ as the primary logon and everyone has permission to use the printer. JetAdmin is loaded on the server but not on any of the workstations...I'll try that this morning. i will also try the 2k share thast was mentioned as well. Is there any other info needed to get a better idea? Thanks so far for the info.
