installing a printer
I just installed Vista Ultimate in 1 of my machines on the network, the
others are running windows XP Pro. the printer is shared on the network
attached to the XP Pro machine. when I tried to install it on the vista
machine it gives me an error saying that the driver is for XP not vista.

my question is how do I install the printer on teh vista machine from the XP
Pro shared machine but using the new vista driver?

First set up File/Printer sharing.

Excellent, thorough, yet easy to understand article about File/Printer
Sharing in Vista. Includes details about sharing printers as well as
files and folders:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l.../bb727037.aspx

Then go to the printer mftr.'s website and download Vista drivers for
your specific model printer. Install the Vista printer drivers on the
Vista machine. The printer should be found during the installation
routine. When you are asked for the connection details, choose "network
printer or printer attached to another computer".
