    I have a computer downstairs that is a windows xp pro machine. I have an HP computer upstairs. If I install the Mac OS that works on intel chipsets, can I network it with the Windows XP Pro comp downstair? will I be able to share the printer and files between computers?

    My powerbook can access smb shares just fine, not sure about printers tho. I have no idea about the OSX x86 developers release however.
