i did this before. of caurse the PCs all had the same workgroup. if the PCs
have different workgroups or domian this operation will not work.

i also setup the printer as a shared printer.
the properties of the printer can be changed after installation.

i had 4 PCs setup to use the same printer.

for the remote PCs to use the printer, the Main PC (the PC with the printer
connected) must be turned on.

from,
Steven
