        you should first check if your printer is compatible with Mac OS X
    (it's usually told on the box' printer, or in its documentation). Even if
    you couldn't find out, go to :

    Applications->Utilities->Printer Setup Utility
        Click on the 'add' button, then, as you did not gave *any* useful
    information about your configuration, you have to select the correct
    printer type (Epson-IP ? HP-IP ? Windows printing ? ... ), and then select
    your printer in the list.

        Once you're done, follow the software assistant and your printer is

        If you couldn't make it work, could you, please, precise what is your
    printer ? (brand and type) and how it is supposed to be shared ? (i.e.
    under windows how did/would you configure it... It should be said in
    your printer's documentation, or ask the person who installed the printer
    if it wasn't you).
