hi,
try this link to get help from Microsoft:
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/expert/honeycutt_july2.mspx
you will get all the information to setup the printer to get access by both your desktop computer and the laptop.
I did all that and it still cant see my printer. does it have to do with the fire wall?
