Printing and network problems with Vista
Hi, I just bought a new Dell Dimension E520 with a Vista OS. It is networked
at a business.

I have two related questions...

1. I cannot 'see' all of the computers on the network. In order for me to
see some of the computers, I need to say that I am in the workgroup called
"workgroup". Even then, I can only see some of the networked computers and
not the ones I am interested in!

2. Since I cannot 'see' all of the computers, I cannot access the printers
attached to those computers. I would like to print to a printer attached to a
computer running XP.

Please help!
Thank you,
Leigh
