Re: Need network printer help
What printer, and what drivers? Did you go thru the Add Printer in the
Printer Settings dialog? Tell it to look for printers on the network? I have
had minor problems - in one case I had to install the printer drivers from a
disk, tell it to print to file, then go into the Add Printers dialog and
tell it to find the printer on the network.
This should Just Work, unless your printer is pretty old...
