    Ok, so I joined the 'party'....Received my first mac today (iMac) and thus far love it! I am, however, having trouble printing from my PC.

    I have my printer directly plugged into my iMac (all is working when printing), using a Canon MP490. I also have enabled printer sharing via the mac. However, when i attempt to print via my windows laptop, I get nothing.

    I also don't get any response when trying to print from my mac when the printer is directly plugged to my pc......
    Am I missing something with the 'network' on the pc? Do I need to setup or include the mac on the PC network??
    Any input and/or direction would be greatly appreciated!

    Ok, so I assume this is related to 'networking' the two units as a whole..... I have finally been able to add my printer, but when I try to access my mac's files (sharing is turned on) the mac is not always listed and when it is, it only allows for access to the dropfolder...
