Hi,

I am having a problem in printing over a shared network printer. The
environment is as follows:
1. A PC running win 98se is sharing a local laser printer Epson EPL6200L.
2. My PC running win xpp (with sp2) is using the shared printer as my
default printer.

Case of problem 1: When I use Excel (version 2003 with latest patches) to
preview a file (it is the same case as MS word), I always have to wait for
over serveral seconds before the preview screen appears. I notice that there
is signals over the network because I saw the little icon flash on the bottom
right of the status bar.

Case of problem 2: Before problem 1 occured, my pc was running winxpp sp1,
there was no problems at all. Recently I got a new computer & it is of win
xpp sp2 and the problem 1 arises again. The windows comes with sp2 & I
can't remove it. What should I do?

I am not too sure if it is because of the winxpp sp2 !!?? Now, I can't get
ride of the sp2, what can I do for printing?

Thanks for your advise & help.

Raymond
