    Hi guys,

    I'm trying to set up my old iBook G4 as a print 'server' for other Macs on my network. I'm having a problem getting the other computers on the network to SEE the shared printer from the iBook. They can see the iBook as a network computer, but can't seem to connect or even 'see' the usb printer.

    I've clicked 'Share Printers on the iBook in both SHARING preferences and the PRINTER AND FAX preferences, but no luck.

    What am I missing??? Any ideas at all would be GREATLY appreciated!

    There may be a problem with the printer's driver, if it requires one. Maybe try and update the driver, or something like that.
