What is the quickest/cheapest way for 5 Windows 2000/NT PCs with ethernet 10/100 cards to share one printer? What hardware is required.

If the pc's are already networked, install the printer on the server/host machine, then go to start, settings, printers and right click it. Select sharing. Share it out as needed. Install the printer as a network printer on all the other pc's along with the drivers, reboot and you should be good to go I believe.
