    It can't be done. OS 8.5 does not have any Windows network connectivity built in. There were some 3rd party software companies that did provide Windows networking capability, but I'm sure they're long gone since that ability is now integrated into OS X.

    It'd probably be cheaper and easier to just buy another printer.

    Not necessaraly. It costs $99 to buy Dave on the internet, so unless he buys a low quality printer, software would be the cheaper solution.:)
