Share Printer between Vista Laptop and XP Desktop
I just cannot share my Printer between XP Desktop and Vista Laptop. THe
printer is installed on both machines. I just want to be able to print from
Laptop through my XP desktop to the printer.

It was so easy when XP had this. I cannot get the 2 to talk!!! Plus the
Network Setup CD in XP, I'm afraid to use that in Vista, backward compliance
issues.

I just want to share the printer, instead of connecting the cable each time
to print.

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.
