    Ubuntu/Windows/Router/Printer

    Another variation on a recurring theme:

    Running Ubuntu 8 on one machine. Server (hardwired) running WIN XP. Computers connected through hardwire router. Printer connected to server. Therefore, print commands go from my machine (the Ubuntu one) throug the server (WXP), then to the printer.

    Cept it don't work. I can double boot WinXP if I must, bring up the doc with OOo for Win, and print it that way, but it's a hassle. I have no idea whether or how I could run the printer directly thru the router, avoiding the whole problem. Maybe that's a better idea? If so, how?

    Thoughts? Thanks.
