    I have trouble with networking a printer on USB001 on an
    XP Home Version with a Win 98 SE machine. I share a
    printer fine on LPT1 on the 98SE machine with the XP. I
    can access files on each computer fine as well. Problem
    seems to be in the printer set up for networking. I have
    checked share printer on XP machine, etc.

    I tried "Browse" in Add Printer on Win 98 SE machine, but
    it did not "see" the printer on XP. So I manually entered
    the XP machine name and printer name (//KITCHEN/PHOTO) and
    it started downloading the drivers from the XP machine(At
    install I clicked the button to load Win 98 SE drivers to
    auto download on the network). Everything seems fine with
    both machines (Can print locally to each printer and can
    print to 98 from XP), but no print from 98 SE to XP. I
    checked MS KnowledgeBase website with no help. Please
