    Printer Sharing


    How would I go about sharing a printer so that my laptop can print to it? My desktop is running Mandriva 2005 and is connected directly to the printer, and my laptop is running Windows XP Pro SP2. I know how to share a printer, if it is connected directly to the windows box, but I've never done it with Linux. Help anyone?

    You just investigate a little thing called Samba. I think it will help in this case.
