    Anyone know how? I setup my girlfriends house with a network and shared the printer in Windows. I'd like to be able to print to it from my PB.

    I installed the drivers on my PB but can't figure out how to configure it.

    I haven't done this but I think you have to set it up as an IP printer and point it at that machine. I could be wrong, but that is my original guess.

    Its pretty easy, share the printer in windows, join the network, open up your print centre on the mac and choose 'windows printing'.

    If you have problems with that start the TCPIP Printing service on the windows computer then use 'IP Printing' protocol on the mac, IP is the windows computer, queue name is the share name of the printer.
