I apologize if this topic has been rehashed forever.  I've assembled a few windows computers for family and friends over the past decade, with reasonable success.  My mom relies on her Ipod, Imac, and Iwhateverotherthingthereis.

She wants to piggyback off the 9X13 printer I bought my dad for his birthday to compliment the computer I built him for last year's Christmas gift.

I have no idea why I can't hook my mom's computer up so she can print from each of the three printers in the house Nothing makes sense in the rtfm sense.  I've looked extensively on Bleeping computer and haven't found any way to get it done.  Any help would be appreciated.

This should get you started. It would help us if you listed which version of OS X the iMac has and the brand/model printers you're are trying to get working with the Mac and wether you want them printing wirelessly or not.

Compatibility is an issue here. Does it support your printer brands? Better check it out.
