I was wondering if there's a way to hook up printers to a network even though the router doesn't have a built in print server?

Just wondering?

pretty much all you need to do is install all the printers on 1 machine and
then share all them out. On all of the other machines that are going to
use these printers, start the "add a printer" wizard, select network
printer, and then find them on your network.

Essentially what you doing is allowing the pc the printers are installed on
to act as a print server. It's really this easy, i promise. :)

It is as easy and exactly as UNFLUX says. The only thing I can think to add is that you may need to install the drivers on your other machines.

*lol -- I think I was up to "teacher" and was working towards that "hacker" stuff when BWM thought it appropriate to promote me. I was slightly curious to see how far I could get, but this is fine with me. I like helping folks.

Install the drivers on your 98 and Mac machine separately (download them if you need to from the manufacturers site) As long as the printer is shared, and all machines can see each other when you install the printer on the 98 and Mac machines, browse to the printer on the XP, capture the port and you should be working. (I can't speak for the MAC, but I know the 98 machine will do it. That's the way mine is connected.)
