    I've got 3 G5 iMacs, one with a USB printer attached. I can share the printer and add it on the other iMacs and print to it no problem, but when I restart them the printer is no longer in the list and I have to add it again.

    This is becoming a pain, and with the old eMacs I had never had this problem. They are all on 10.4.11, am I doing something wrong?

    Thanks :)

    Well, this is probably not all that helpful, but I have a shared USB printer off of my G5 iMac, and it doesn't disappear if anything (or everything!) is rebooted.
