    I'm trying to get a WINXP (home) machine to share a printer with
    Win98se laptop. Both are wireless connections. I can share files between
    both pc's fine. Both are on the same workgroup. The printer, HP722c, is on
    the XP machine and it prints ok.
    When I try to add printer on the win98 system it asks me where the
    printer is, I click 'network', and it finds the 722c on the XP. It asks me
    which make and model it is but the 722c is not on the list, so I click "have
    disk". I have an old win95, win2k disk for the 722c but I can't get it to
    load.

    Hope I've explained correctly.
