    I have a Windows 2003 machine as my print server. I am able to install and
    share printers wthout a problem. All of my client computers can add the
    printers on the server by telling the print wizard specifically where to go
    but all but one doesn't show up when I try to add them by using the printer
    directory. I double checked that the "List in the directory" box is checked
    but still I get nothing.

    Thanks but this won't fix it because where I have my users and computers and
    where I have my printers are two different servers. My print server doesn't
    have Active Directory installed. Could this be the problem? I personally
    don't think so because we have Windows XP and 2000 workstations that have
    shared printers attached to them and they are in the directory... and
    obviously they don't have Active Directory either. Is there some other way?
