You need to have the printer operating on the one medium (USB, parallel).
I've never tried it, but I reckon if you connect two PCs and a printer to a USB hub, the PCs will try identify each other as devices.
The answer would be to get a couple of NICs and a crossover cable, allow shared devices etc. and attach the printer to one of the PCs.
