Access to domain printer from workgroup computer without dual logon

I have a client with winnt4 domain.  She has a hp4100n shared on the server.  she claims that she could use the network printer without being authenicated by the DC from a laptop running win2k pro. The win2k pro laptop is a member of a workgroup with the same netbios name as the DC.  All I have done is change her domain password witch used to match her local computer password.  How can I allow her to connect to the shared printer on the domain from the workgroup computer without being authenicated by the DC?

is this a network based printer (RJ45 port on printer) or is it being shared from another system? If it is a network printer then you may be able to just install the drivers and configure the laptop to print to it. If  the printer is not a network printer than i'm not sure. why not change her local password to match the new domain password?

The printer is a hp4100n. "n" is network. I have solved the problem by adding the printer on the laptop as a local printer with a TCP/IP port pointing to the 4100n. Thanks - Mike
