One computer - two printers

I am fairly certain that it is possible to run two printers from one computer but need advise on how exactly to do it?

I want to run two printers from one non-networked home computer (W98).

Help!

If you have a USB and a Parallel port you can do it with what you have got. But if they are both Parallel you will need a switch box and cables if they are HP printers get Bi-Directional cables

I have an Epson 895 and an Epson 880 connected to the same computer. The 895 is connected via the USB and the 880 via the parallel port. Both work extremely well. You just have to remember to change the printer when you print to the one you want it to print to.
