sharing printer on NetWare 6.x network

I'm not sure where to post this but i'm hoping some of you guys can help me.

I have to set up a printer in my CEO's office and have his secretary print to it also. He has a laptop with XP and has NTFS file system, she has a desktop with XP and FAT32. I have shared the printer and given everyone as many permissions as possible, they are both on the same workgroup. When I try connect to her pc from his a little dialog box pops up asking for username and password, but everything i try does not work. When I try connect to his pc from hers I get a permission error.

What am I missing or doing wrong? Any ideas that I can try?

thanks

Re: sharing printer on NetWare 6.x network

You need to post in the Microsoft Forums.
You are sharing the Printer via the Microsoft Networking Components of
Windows.
Novell's software does not play any role in this.

I have no issue with your method, it just does not involve any Novell code.
