Problem sharing printer

I'm not sure where to post this because we don't use iPrint.

I'm having problems sharing a printer over my network. I have a samsung ML-2010 connected to and shared from a laptop with XP Pro. i'm tryingto connect to it from a desktop with XP Pro. They are both on the same workgroup and both have NTFS file systems. No matter which way I try connect I get an error saying

" \\user is not accessible. You might not have the permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permission. "

On both pc's I've given the everyone group full control. I want to find out if there is anything I'm missing or have not done. both pc's connect to servers running Novell NetWare 6.5. is the issue novell permissions or is it a workgroup issue. Any and all help is welcome.

Since you are using MS printer sharing then this is in no way related
to Novell. Sorry, we cannot help you.
