I wish to share a printer set up on a XP Pro Computer, on to a Windows 98 SE
Laptop.

Both computers have been joined into the same Network, and have IP Address's
Allocated.

The Windows XP Pro computer has got NetBeui installed.

Printer Sharing has been set up for the printer.

How can I get the Windows 98 Laptop to Print to the Windows XP Computer.

Probably not for XP does not recognize the 98 print instructions which are
FAT32 and XP is probably running NTFS. You can go directly from the 98
to the printer or XP to the printer but not one thru the other. Check the
below
site for you could print using the DOS instructions which 98 is based on.
