    Is it possible to share printers in a network without buying those expensive print servers?

    I have a DSL gateway with one wired and one wireless computer. Two printers are connected to the wired computer. I heard from a friend that it's possible to share the printers by configuring some things in Windows XP. Although he has forgotten how to do this, I believe it has something to do with enabling file and printer sharing. Can anyone walk me through the procedure?

    Thanks, musksnipe! Network Magic works as advertised. Still, does anyone know how to set up file/printer sharing through Windows XP without installing any third-party programs? And is the procedure any different in Windows Vista?
