cant find USB printer over the network to be setup for sha..

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.print_fax (More info?)

i have a small home network of 2 computers and one printer. the computer
that the printer is on is conected to is through a USB cable. whenever i try
to add that printer on the second computer on the network, it can never find
any printers. is it because the printer is going through the USB cable and
not one of those older cables? or is there a special address i have to give
to it then put that address in the second computer so that it can find it?
