Default Win XP Home & Win 98 ?

Try uninstaling and reinstalling driver if it still causes troubles. Try
using the right driver on bothe computers IE win 98 on Win 98 computer and
win XP printer driver on XP printer. Hope it helps...

One thing I have come across ... especially with USB printers is that if

have disconnected the printer since you have setup the share the printer

automatically reinstall using a different port but the share is still

to use the original port

definately something to check!!
