Is there a way to get a Classic system (OS 9.2.2) to be able to share a USB printer being shared by an eMac running OS 10.2.6?

Don't tell me that OS 9 machines can only share printers with other OS 9 machines and OS X machines are only able to share to their like.

Thanks!

Yep, that's right. You can't share between the two operating systems. They both use different protocols for printer sharing.

If your printer is a PostScript printer, try this tutorial. If it does not support PostScript, you should install Ghostscript and GIMP-Print to make your printer PostScript-compatible.
