Adding a printer in a Visa wireless laptop

Hi all I wasn't to sure whether to put this in speakers or not as it is not a problem for me but it might just help someone else

I have only owned my new Vista laptop for eight days and I am well impressed with it ( I love Vista)

however the reason for my post is as follows I knew my old printers were not going to work with Vista did my homework regarding that!

so my newly purchased Vista compatible printer once installed in my Main XP machine I then tried on several occasions to add the printer on my wireless Vista laptop having already installed the driver on my Vista laptop no go it would not find it at all

so on the process of giving up I went to my Network places found my XP computer with the printer installed and just clicked on the printers name and within seconds the printer was installed on my Vista laptop and most important was usable and working

the key is don't go to add printer install it through your network

I realise this information might sound lame to the more advanced users on the forum but my aim is maybe to help those who are experiencing Vista for the first time!
