I want to have all printers accessible from any other computers in the
house. Any suggestions?

#1PC: Cabled to router, Printer - parallel connected HP Laserjet
#2PC: Linksys Wireless G PCI card, Printer - USB connected HP
Inkjet/copier/scanner
#3PC: Linksys Wireless G PCI card, Printer - USB connected HP Inkjet
All PC's running XP PRO

Thanks in advance!

You can turn on printer sharing, and do the usual stuff needed
so that the systems can talk to each other (e.g., same workgroup,
same subnet.)

I do not recall at the moment whether printer sharing is dependant
upon NETBIOS over IP.

XP PRO makes it relatively easy to configure printer sharing -- you
pretty much have to go out of your way to turn it off. You can,
as I recall, adjust your local security policy to block printer sharing
or refine who can share printers or who can install new printer drivers.
(Right-click on "My Computer" and select "Manage" from that menu,
or alternately run the program named MMC . You might have to add
security policies as a "snap in" before you get it as a menu item
via MMC. But not security -templates- : that is for configuring
something different.)

You can get a print server and plug it into the printer and the router. All
machines will print to the printer and you don't need the printer connected
to a computer that's sharing the printer on the network.
