Re: XP PC & Vista Laptop Networking Help

turn on file and printer sharing in network and sharing center, make
sure u have the vista drivers installed for the printer you want to use
... and if all fails ... go to control panel and add a network printer
with "\\computername\printername" for where the printer is located ...
let me know if that helps any
