Ok, as you will tell i am not an expert, just a dabbler....

Anyway, we are running about 10 pc's on a network .The server is running WinNT4, 7 pc's are running WinXP Pro, 3 are running Japanese Win2K.
we don't have a domain, just run them on a workgroup. All pc's can see the server and files ok, but now i want to sahre our new color printer. It is on one of the pc's and is only used as a print server. The print server is one of the XP machines. All users using xp can see it and share with no problem, all 2K machines can see it but have no access. The message that pop's up is something like "access not allowed"

As i said, i'm no expert just trying to get the thing working....

Any help would be wonderful...

check the permisisions on your shared printer.  Right-click on the printer (while on the windows XP machine that it is connected to) and look at the permissions and security tabs.  Add a user called 'everybody' and give them full permissions.  This should allow the other computers to print.

Also, you may need to enable the guest account on the windows XP machine.  To do this, right click on my computer, then select manage.  From there, choose Local users and groups and then choose users.  See if the guest account is disabled.  Enable it.  Set a password for it (just right click on the account).

I think the win2k machines try to connect using the guest account.
