Basic MAC 101 - How to use a windows shared printer

(OP)
I'm clueless on MAC's. My daughter just got an MACBook. OS - Snow Leopard. We have a printer shared off a Windows Vista Box. Printer share name - \\Vistabomb\hpcolor.

Thanks

You might try using BONJOUR which is a program for printers. I don't know if it works on Vista, but you can try it. Look here: apple.com/support/downloads/bonjourforwindows.html
