Adding Network Printer

I have added a printer to my XP computer that I want to network with my win
98 computer. On the XP I have set it up to share, put when I go to the 98
computer - network neighborhood and double click the printer is not listed.
What am I doing wrong, how do I get it added. They are connected with a
network hub. I can get the xp computer in the network to work, but not the 98

Thanks,
Candie

Did you enable File and Print Sharing?

Yes it was, and I finally got it to work. I ran the network setup again.
and then I could add the path to the printer setup to the 98 machine. Thanks
for your help.
