Win98se: printersharing enabled, but no menu to click on

Hi experts,

i have setup a Win98se PC as a printserver (only for that task) - the 10 parallel connections of win2k aren't enough (its a 20 PC schoolclass) ... so i configured this OS. After enabling printersharing in the networktab, i thought to have the printersharing menu enabled (which i thought to come out by rightclick on the printer) - but just nothing! I have no means to use my sharing tab, as there is noone!

Weird.. I 've done this a lot of times when win9x was uptodate ...
Any helpful hints?

Don't just add a check in the check box, add the file and printer sharing client under networking. If you just add the check it will not come up. (if you dont want to share the hard drive dont create any shares.

Wow.. i beleive i'm just falling down laughing... i will check this tomorrow when i'm back in school - but i'm 99% sure you're right ;-)))
I remember to have installed MS Client, NIC and TCP/IP - 3 items and nothing more ... (*lol*) ... how can MS allow me to do sharing, when i haven't installed such a thing...

No, that wasn't the fix... I try to reinstall NIC, but today i had my drivers not ready and no internet-access with this PC...
