    I have currently networked two computers using xp and have set up print/file sharing and everything works fine. I am trying to see if i can share the scanner . Any ideas ????

    Set the scanner to save the output to a directory that is shared out or to a mapped drive on the other PC. Then access that directory with your other PC. It's lame, but that's the only way to do it that I know of.

    Yeah, there would be no other real way to share the scanner..I believe other then what raven said...Scanners aren't really a highly networked device :p
