	I did that, but did not try again to print, nor to configure 
anything on one machine from another. 

	I did check the printers listed -- and found no two lists the 
same.

	#1 shows its own printer, and nothing else, not even my wife's.

	#2, as previously reported, shows my wife's twice, and mine seven 
different ways on three identifiable (by me) machines.

	#3 shows my wife's twice, and mine four times, if you accept the 
designation "default" as telling me it's on #1.

	#4 machine shows my wife's twice, and mine five times, 
identifying them in various ways.

	There's more detail, among which it may be of interest that, 
somewhere in all that, I noticed an identification of a printer on one 
machine, and a driver of a different machine.

	Whoo - ooo -- oooie!
