    I have four networked iMacs. Two are running Panther (10.3.9), one Tiger (10.4.11), and one Leopard (10.5.1). All are wirelessly hooked up to a DSL modem. I can share files between them all great.

    When I added a USB printer hooked up to one of the Panther computers I was able to add it to the Tiger computer easily.

    I can't add it to the the computer running Leopard. When I click on the + sign in Print & Fax in System Preferences it is not found.

    Any suggestions on how I can add this shared networked printer would be appreciated.

    I would try to install the ppd of the printer to your machine & I always use the printer setup within the Utilities folder (maybe thats just me, but always found it more informative).

    If you go to the website of the manufacturer of the printer & download the driver software for the ppd it may well sort the problem.

    Just a quick idea.... Good luck.
