Hey guys,

Well, I'm getting tired of using a USB Drive to transfer files to my PC to print them so I thought I would share the printer installed on my PC. Turns out that hasn't been working out too well.

I have searched the internet for hours trying to find a solution, but it's usually the same information. Here is a just a sample of the links I have clicked on:

In Mac OS X, how do I connect to and share files with a Windows computer? - Knowledge Base
Printing a Mac file to PC printer - Tech Support Forum
How can I print from my Mac to a Windows network printer? | Ask Metafilter
GUIDE: Networking Windows with OS X - Mac Forums

The last link I clicked on was:
Printer Sharing - Windows XP Printer Sharing With Mac OS X 10.5

I have setup a workgroup:

But when I go to Print & Fax > Windows, there is no workgroup there.
I have tried to set it up through IP and using CUPS, even going to Advanced and using SMB.

Can anyone help?
QUOTE Thanks
