I haven't seen anything that I should fix, and my Vista machine prints fine
to all other printers on my network, and all other computers on my network
print to the printer attached to the Vista machine.

I think Bill & Co., have left a crack in the system, and I am falling into

If there was anything I hadn't already thought of, you guys would have told
me by now.

I assume you can already view shared files ?
If so, then that rules out most or all of the file/printer sharing
issues. Like firewall and so on..

And, as you said, you can print from the vista machine.. (so I guess
it's not a driver issue)

Include the whole error message, word for word, as verbose as it is.
The reason if it isn't obvious already, is For Google, it helps you
and others.

I am puzzled .. Why did people suspect a driver issue when you can
print from your vista machine.

I have heard that with network printers, or printers that connect to a
device that make it like a network printer. You need a driver on each
machine. But this is not your situation. (network printers are
printers that have like an RJ45 or ethernet port. A network socket.
Rather than connecting directly to a computer) Yours connects directly
to a computer, so that is not the issue.
