Printing with XP 2

I've got a comptuer that logs into Novell 5.1 great, all the drives are
mapped and all the programs off the server run correctly. When I go to
the printer applet in the control panel and select Add a Printer, I get
an error message telling me "The Operation cannot be completed." and so
I checked the services to see if the printer spooler was was
not, so I started it.....go back to the printer applet and again choose
Add a Printer and the error message refers to a Printer Subsystem that is
in error. At this point, it doesn't matter what kind of printer I have
networked in this lab because I can't get past the error when I try to
add one.
any help would be most helpful!

Re: Printing with XP 2

It's very unlikely that the Novell client is related to this problem.
Suggest you check in the MS forums for more help...
