Sharing an HP Deskjet 842c Printer
 
Hi,
I'm going back to college next week, and I plan on bringing my HP Deskjet 842c(which I currently use with my Powermac G4 under X and 9.1). Anyhow, This printer has both a parallel and USB connection. I'm currently using an Epson Parallel to USB cable(i didn't have a spare A-B USB cable lying around). Anyhow, is it possible that if I use a regular USB cable to connect to my G4, that the Parallel port could be used to connect to my roommates PC? I realize we could not print simultaneously(which isn't a problem at all). This should work right? Has anyone tried this? Thanks for any info
