printing off Win2K OS on XP printer

Hi,

I share a printer between 2 PCs, 1 running XP Home, the other Win2K. All new printers no longer recognise Win2K as far as I'm aware, so is it possible to set up the Win2K PC to operate a printer built for XP or higher or am I going to have to upgrade that PCs OS?

Cheers.

Just heard from Kodak Support on this &their inspirational response is to upgrade the OS. In otherwords, they've copped out & stated the b**ing obvious! I know that IF there is a solution, one of you guys out there will know it.

Even if you're printing via a printer connected to an XP PC and set as "shared", you still need to have the Windows 2000 drivers in the PC that's running that operating system.

Thanks mgmcc, it really does look like I'm stuffed on this one. Kodak do not have any Win2K drivers for this printer, I suppose that if they did, they'd be on the printer's CDROM & there's no sign of them.

Cheers anyway.
