    I didnt think it was that hard. I have an XP machine and Panther and panther found the printer over the network after I installed the printer driver.

    Well I have a Brother Laser Printer and it has both Parallel and USB on the back of it so I just use the Parallel for my PC and the USB for my iMac. It works great! Maybe that will work if you have both ports on the back of your printer and its Mac compatible(gimp print drivers may work!).
