    More Questions
    Touch wood, my iMac seems to be working fine at the moment.

    It is connected via an ethernet cable to a Linksys router. It is also connected via USB to a HP Deskjet printer.

    I have a Wintel Vista machine connected to this router wirelessly. How can I print from the Vista machine to this printer? On the iMac side I have setup printer sharing. However, the Vista doesn't see the iMac on the network.

    Thanks.

    Made some progress but no cigar yet, as I wrote in the following thread:

    Sharing a USB printer from Mac OS X to Windows | redemption in a blog

    Would appreciate help.

    I was able to print from my Vista laptop to the iMac USB printer.

    My iMac still freezes once in a while during powerup. The cursor freezes. By disconnecting and reconnecting the keyboard I was able to resolve this. The mouse is plugged to the USB port on the keyboard.
