  1. can i share 2 printers using Windows 98 by installing 2 printers on the host machine, or do i have to install 1 printer on each machine?
    or can i do it both ways?
    the goal is to use 2 printers on a 2 machine home LAN.

    Are they USB Printers? or Parallel Ports?

    If you use a hub/router and you still have a free port on it, you could look into the Netgear PS110 printserver. This allows for 2 parallel-port printers, which can be used by either PC. Look for other models if your printers require USB.
