using printer
i want to use my printer (currently connected to my xp computer) with my
vista laptop. BUT when I try to open my xp pc on the network page on vista
it asks for a user name and password. I have tried all possible options but
none work - also the xp pc has the domain name same as the vista laptop. SO
the question is....what di i do....can I bypass the password etc...or can i
find it somewhere....or is there an easier way of using the printer.

you might know this
if you dont know this connecting to another vista laptop does the same thing.
You are supposed to enter your windows username and password in that box
where it says username and password
