Network Changes

I have a 3 computer network. I need to make some changes. Call the 3 computers A, B & C.

Computer A has Windows XP Media
Computers B & C have Windows XP Pro

At present, computer B has a usb hub attached to it which has 4 usb ports, currently containing an All-In-1 HP Printer, a digital camera USB & a couple of other things. Computer B also has a HP 880 C printer directly connected to it.

Computer C is old, slow & with limited memory (386MB). I want to eliminate computer C and replace it with B. I want to physically move the usb hub & the 880C Printer to computer A.

I understand how to do the physical moves. How do I tell the software on the various computers where the things are after I make the physical moves?

PS - I will load all the needed files & folders from computer C to computer B before I physically remove computer C

Simple, once you move the printer just share it again on the new computer (like you did before) delete the maping to it from the other computers and recreate.
