    Hey everyone, I'm new to this site, and new to Macs. Just got a 15" Powerbook and I'm loving it so far :)

    I'm wondering how to set up printer sharing to my Desktop PC through my Wireless network. Supposedly its supposed to be easy, buuuuuttt..... I can't figure it out :)

    Click on System Preferences in the Dock, The White Square with the Apple, Click on Sharing in the third line. Put a check in the Printer Sharing box. All done.

    Well, then on the PC you do an Add printer, and Find it though the network. Might also whan to turn on Window Sharing on your Mac so you can send files back and forth.

    Also, try installing Bonjour for Windows on the PC. It quite often makes the process easier. :)
