I am trying to get an HP PSC 1315 (connected by USB to an XP Home
computer and shared from there) to work over the network to a Windows
98 system. The share works fine on another XP box on the network. Is
it possible to make it work for the Windows 98 system, and if so what
driver should I use? The driver from HP for Windows 98 will not
install on the 98 system.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Thanks, measekite, I should have looked harder for an answer in this
group before I posted, I think I have found the answer.

My XP system is setup to dual-boot XP and 98, so I can boot it into 98,
share the printer out with the same share name as in XP, install the
printer from this share on the second 98 "client" system, then boot the
main system the printer is attached to back to XP, and it should work.

To share printers over a network share I believe you must have a print
driver on each computer. That allows each person to set their own print
criteria in the driver on their machine.
