Network Error Message

Hi'
I'm trying to set up a home network with my 2 computers.
Computer 1 Win XP Pro
Computer 2 Win XP Home
I ran the network wizard on #1 with no problems
When I ran the network wizard on computer #2 I get the following error message... "Spooler SubSystem App has encountered a problem and needs to close" preventing me from finishing my setup.
I went to support.microsoft and the suggestion was this sometimes happens with "lexmark" printers.
I have 2 Epson printers and 1 HP printer. Never had a lexmark!
Both computers share a DSL line with no problems. I need to be able to share the printers.
Any help with this appreciated
Thanks

Mike

How are you connecting the computers? Router, internet connection sharing?

Are all three printers connected to the two computers? How?

Here are some relevant articles. I an not sure exactly what you have, so let this be a start.

There may be some incompability between printer drivers.

Hope this helps.

Repairman22,
Computer #2 Windows XP Home version...
Are you trying to create a network at home with a private domain? Home version will not run in a domain. As stand-alone or in a workgroup. (I do not use home ver.) Network wizard may not be available for home version.
Quick thought, as you state, you do not have Lexmark printer.
Curious...
Off to M$ KB and dig..
