First you need a spare port -- parallel or USB. Then get a printer with the appropriate connector, and plug it in.
Then go into Start/Settings/Printers and click on the Add Printer icon. It will then lead you through the setup process, which will probably require you to have the printer drivers disk for the new printer.
You will then have two printers available to you, which will be selectable in the Print screen whenever you send something to print.
I have two printers running from my PC using a DATA Switch.. One cable runs into the printer port on the PC then two cables run from the switch,one to each printer. One is a Lexmark the other is a Hewlett Packard. The only problem have is I have to go into the control panel to change the default printer setting over but I can use both printers,albeit seperatly. One for picture printing the other faster for letters etc.. Hope this is of some help. Dan
