You can do it by recreating the network, using a XP computer. Control Panel Network wizard, before you run it turn on all PC's and Printers, then use the wizard to create the network. create a Disc or put on USB stick when it asks then while they are all still switched on use the disc in other computers by clicking on the one file on the disc. I think you know how to share files

I,ve tried links, most are out of date because they lead to official HP site where they show as broken because HP no longer supports Win98se/me and removed all drivers for the os

You do not need drivers if you do it my way. The Printer need to be connected to the 98se PC
