    Hey everyone, quick question...

    I recently bought my first Mac (powerbook) and I am trying to connect it to share my Windows printer. I have 2 other Windows machines printing off it and an Ubuntu linux box...they all work perfectly fine...

    I cannot get my PB to find the printer on the network, and I have gone though all the settings/options (i think) in the system preferences...

    Any ideas or something I'm missing? Thanks...

    How is the printer connected to the Mac? Is it connected directly to a PC which shares it or is it connected to a router? If it's connected to a PC, maybe install Bonjour for Windows on all the PCs. :)
