One of my computers is loaded with WIN XP home and the other with WIN98SE. I want to connect them to a a single printer which has a parallel cable port, but no USB port. I know there are several ways to do this, but I am looking for the simplest and least expensive. I have on hand serial, parallel and USB cables. I do not own any switch boxes, except a KVM, nor routers, hubs or any other device which would connect a USB port with a parallel port. The XP computer is equipped with six USB 2.0 ports and the WIN98SE with two USB 1.1 ports. I have considered making the XP computer a server, connecting it to the printer and then giving the WIN98SE computer access to the printer via the server. All suggestions are welcome, especially regarding systems already in place and working well.
