    Is there a way to print on a printer hooked up to a Windows XP Machine (usb) from a networked mac? I don't want to use Dave or whatever, and if at all possible, just the bare OSses.

    Sorry, i tried that and it didn't work. That ghostscript emulator stuff is 'horse hockey'. Can't get unix print services 'cause I have home edition. Stupid MS people. Thanks though. Any other suggestions?

    Thanks

    Thanks for the link sparkleytone; I'll be needing that soon, but right now i'm having trouble networking my PB and my XP box. I just can't get them to see each other. Any advice on that? Anyone?

    Thanks,

    Although not the method that MS would approve of, I would recomend downloading the Pro version of XP. It is considerably less buggy and it has much more functionality. I use it and haven't had nearly the problems my friends on Home edition have had.
