RE: Share Printer between Vista Laptop and XP Desktop
Vista home networking is different to XP; read the above.
Get the two of them sorted out, and run the XP setup wizard in XP only, with
both comps turned on.
Plug the printer into XP, after XP file and primter sharing wizard is
finished(above), then go into vista Network and sharing, and add a network
device, namely printer on XP, browse for it.
