I have a PC running W2K pro which is part of a small office network.   This PC shares an office printer with 4 others.  I've hooked up an HP 1300 directly to it and I want to have the PC prompt me with a choice of the 2 printers I want to use for the print job....How can I do this..??

You cant, it will select the default printer :( however - get into the habit of using the keyboard and NOT the mouse to print things. Press CTRL+P to print and you can change the printer (from most Microsoft applications)

Adding to PeteLong's comment, if you're a mouse junkie, then click File | Print and from this window you can select the printer you wish to use...  

Note: just remember that using the printer icon from the toolbar will usually send your print job directly to the default printer
