Small school, has internet connection going to 10MB hub. Apple Airport Base Station connects to hub, there are 6 iBooks with Airports and an HP wp100 wireless print server for Mac. The admin office has a W2K machine with nic and Cat5 back to same hub.

I want to be able to print from the W2K machine to the printer attached to the HP print server.

Would also like to print from the iBooks to the local printer attached to LPT1 on the W2K machine.

There is no server, all machines get DHCP supplied addresses from the ISP (state run network). I am a Mac novice, any help appreciated.

on the W2K machine, add a new local printer, don't let the wizard look for any printer now. Then click next and add a new port, choose the tcpip port and enter the ip address of the print server. When the wizard asks for a driver, enter the cd with the printer drivers and look for the correct inf file. finish the wizard and you'll have your printer added...

To print from the ibooks on the W2K printer; share that printer and then add the printer on the ibooks. by default the printer should pop up in the add printer box on your ibooks..
