I have a home network.  Main computer runs Win 98 - 2d ed, other computer connected wireless runs Win XP.  Use Linksys wireless router.  Everything worked fine for over a year.  Main computer crashed during shutdown and everything got scrambled.  I have reinitialized router etc and now have internet connection on both computers.  I cannot share printer however, an HP5P attached to main computer.  On second computer it keeps saying cannot find HP5P on network.  I used wizard etc, no luck.  I have printer sharing enabled for HP5P and have enabled printer sharing on Control Panel - Network.

Help please.

unshare and reshare the printer on the host, then re-use the wizard and add it to the client
