Home Network sharing printer



Home pc with XP home, Belkin router, laptop with XP pro.

Lap top connects to network and can use internet. I want to share the USB printer which is connected to my main pc with the laptop. I thought I'd done everything right but can't get it to work-any ideas??

Thanks
