wireless printing Vista to Mac 10.4
I've got a wireless home network set up and everything works great except
printing.
My Mac and Vista laptop talk to each other fine. But when I go to print from
the Vista laptop (through the wireless network to the Mac where the printer
is connected) nothing happens. The printer queue says it spools without error
but nothing prints and nothing shows up on the Mac printer queue. Sharing is
enabled and I don't what I'm missing. Anyone got any ideas?

Did you install Vista drivers for that printer on the PC? If not, you
need to do so. Otherwise, see if this Lifehacker.com link helps
(although you probably already are using Samba if sharing files between
the two systems):
