in addition to the other
responses:

if the printer is plug n play
and uses a usb, you can simply
unplug the printer from one computer
and simply plug it into the usb port
of another that you want to print with.

just be sure that both computers
have the drivers installed for your
printer.

also, a usb hub can help too that
way the printer usb connector
can be accessiable if you have
one of those pc's with the usb ports
on the backside.

Firstly let me say I am a novice so please answer in novice style...I
have my PC (Windows XP Professional) connected to a HP 1315
(all-in-one) printer which is fine....I have now found it necessary to
work on my laptop at the same time as the PC is in use......Can someone
tell me how to connect the laptop to the same printer please. Both the
PC and the laptop are connected to the internet via cable connections
from a router...Many thanks...Telboy
