Can someone point me to some decent instructions for installing a network printer in Leopard? I have a HP 2600n connected to a Linksys router, and am trying to make it work with my Mac, but really don't even know where to start. I read a little about bonjour, but really don't even know what it actually does.

OK, I found where to add a printer by just trying to print something. Apple sure makes it easy.

Yeah, I plugged the printer into my router through ethernet. I then just went to File > Print in Safari, and the printer was there. It asked which driver I think and that was it, it works.

I don't really have a network per say... All I've done is set my other two PC's sharing certain folders and the printers. I can see these items on my PC's and could even see them with my macbook using Tiger. But now with my Mac Pro using Leopard I cant see anything. I'm using the network to get on the internet but that it. All I really want to do is use the printers...

QUOTE Thanks
