Yes, they are. Something else, though. I right clicked on the printer
(laptop), clicked on Run as Administrator, and then clicked on Properties.
Almost everything is grayed out, I can't make any changes, or very few. This
is not the case on my desktop. I'm wondering if this is simply some sort of
permissions issue. I know very little about permissions in Vista, but it
appears I may be locked out from managing the printer, including enabling
Printer Sharing. What do you think?
