    need help!
    Heres the setup: Dr. is running OSX on an iMac but my sister, his office manager, has to run windows (Me for now) to use the file/payment software that all of his locations use. (she also doesnt want to deal with a new machine:rolleyes: )

    We have the Mac recognizing the PC hard drive using Samba, but we cant seem to get the Mac to find the HP all-in-one (*gag*) printer that is conncted to the PC as a shared device. Samba doesnt want to go find the printer and beyond that im not sure how i would make it see and print to the shared printer.

    any ideas anyone??

    OS X will look for CUPS printer-sharing printers on the network. But, iirc, that printer has to have mac drivers also. If you can figure out how to enable CUPS printer sharing on the PC, that might do it.
