I set up a wireless network between my mac and pc. I can exchange files between the two computers. Where do i have to look on my powerbook in order to get files from my pc? I know that on my pc i look at "my network places".

My other question is that my printer is not listed in the dropdown menu for hp printers in my printer utility. i tried to type the ip address for the printe but that didn't work either. what am i doing wrong? how can i get my printer work? By the way the printer is connected to the pc.

Be it remote or local, the printer must be installed, in order for you to be able to print.
