can't find shared printer on second pc

  _clive_ 19:51 29 Oct 2006

we've successfully created a local network with our two pc's but can't seem to share the printer. the printer is directly connected to my pc and works well, it has shared printing selected, but on the other pc there is no sign of it!
we've tried searching for it on the second pc but no luck....any suggestions please?
(both on XP SP2)

well we sorted it in the end by looking into the workgroup from the second pc, opening the first pc and looking for the a warning about the driver needing to be installed, clicked ok, the driver installed and now the printer will share! just wonder why the network wizzard wouldn't pick it up?

I do not use it like you, I open Windows explorer then Go to bottom of Tree to Networks MSHOME and Expand till you see all
