I installed a new HP Laserjet 1012  (USB Connectivitiy) on my system (W2k) and enabled the sharing portion of the properties.  However the other computer on the system can not see it.  I use a Netgear Router and hub for my connections to the internet etc.  Do I need to get a network adapter for this printer work with the other computer or is there something else I can set up in the existing system.  The other computer is running windows XP

Can you see the other PCs on the network when you double-click on "My Network Places" (specifically the one that has the printer attached)?

If you can, try going to Start/Run, type \\servername\printername and see what happens.

That worked I was able to see the other computers and get the printers set up.  I also renamed them to an easy name and workgroup which made since as well as put them all in the same work group.  Everything is up and fine.  Thanks
