Warning! You will save yourself some frustration when supporting this new OS if you can remember this little quirk. Once you have set up a shared printer to an XP box on a network, if the XP box logs on and the shared device is not on the network, you would expect XP to tell you that. Instead, it will issue a warning stating that "you do not have rights to access this printer, please contact your system administrator." Your first impulse might be to check out the user account or policies instead of simply checking to see if the printer is online.
