How do I network a scanner

  Fuchsia Cottage 10:50 21 Mar 2004

I have 2 pc's both with xp and networked, I would like to access my Epsom 1250 usb scanner from both pc's, but can only use it on the pc it is connected to at the moment, any ideas?

I've tryed this and you can't its not a simple as it sounds the problem with networking a scanner is a you have to be in the same room as the scanner and be you then have to tell it were to save the files to be honest its not worth doing

its ok my girlfriend uses a laptop were she works ( shes a teacher ) and needs to scan things the only way round if your running windows xp put all the scanned items in the shared folder and share it across the network that way people can transfer it on to what ever computer their working on
