2 comps one printer..

Hey guys, in my house their is two computers, my brother's and mine, well he is starting to get on my nerves coming in here asking me everyone 5 mins if he can use my computer to print something. Now I head they are some devices that you can plug in pritner to allow us to "share" the printer? What are those called?

OK I found this on the internet and you can try it
Click Start -> Control Panel -> Printers And Other Hardware -> Printers And Faxes. (Note: These steps will be a little different if you’re sharing a printer on a PC running a version of Windows other than XP. For example, under Windows Me, you click Start -> Settings -> Printers.)
Click the printer you wish to share.
Click Share This Printer in the Task Pane.
In the printer’s Properties dialog, click the Sharing tab.
Click Share Name and OK.

Once a printer has been shared you can access it from other computers on the network. To do so:

Click Start -> Control Panel -> Printers And Other Hardware.
Click Add A Printer.
In the Add New Printer wizard, when asked whether the printer is a local or network printer, select the latter.
In the next screen, select the option to Browse For A Printer and click Next.
Select the appropriate printer from the list and continue with the wizard.

If he has important files on it, find a friend running Linux (Knoppix or Mepis) and use the live CDs to retreive them to another computer/drive and do a reinstall
