Default could use some help

hi

I have some questions and was hoping for some answers or solutions

1. I need to know if there is such a thing as a dual input printer. I need to connect a G5 and a PC to a printer without having to switch anything or having a wireless network.

2. I need to know if there is such a thing as a dual input scanner. I need to connect a G5 and a PC to a printer without having to switch anything or having a wireless network.

any help is greatly appreciated

Carl

Hook the printer up to the PC. Hook the PC to the network. Add a printer on the mac. Select the options "windows printing". Try either workgroup or network neighborhood. Apple talk should pick up the printer and then finish the installation.

Im on a PC right now so if I any steps missing im sorry.
