    Specs:
    PB G4. 15" 512MB RAM & EMac G4 superdrive
    Printing To Network Printer
    I have a iBook in a medical office that is used primarily for online purchasing. The other computers are PC's setup in a peer to peer configuration. No real network is in place. There are two printers that are connected to the router that all of the PC's can print to. I want the iBook to print to it also. Will it see the printers thru the router like the PC's do? After I install the drivers to it will it print to it like the PC's do?

    You may be able to discover the printers through AppleTalk. If that doesn't work, you'll need the IP address is for the printers.

    If you go to your Finder Help, there should be documentation to get you started with network printer sharing.
