    I have my printer connected and setup to be shared over my network (on my iBook) My mom can see it over Bonjour... so can my brother access it with his PC if install bonjour??? Or do I need to set it up differently? If so, how?

    Turn on Windows Sharing on your computer. Then just add a network printer on his computer.

    Bonjour was designed for this sort of thing. It should be very painless. :)

    Awesome. I wanted to make sure that Bonjour would work for this.
