If you have only one printer, and want to share it, get this (http://www.buy.com/comp/product.asp?Sku=10159183) product! It plugs directly into the centronix port on your printer. And it's only $41.95. If you get one, use it with IPX, not Netbeui; Netbeui is much slower.

That's weird. You can share just about any printer if you have a network setup. IPX or TCP/IP works really well. With the LPT1 port shared, the computer that has the printer should be on all the time.

I am using a HP jetdirect card. It supports both IPX and TCP/IP.
