I have an iMac 333 hooked up to an Epson Color Stylus 860 and I have USB Printer Sharing set up so I can print to the Epson from my iBook over my local wireless LAN. Only thing is, the iBook will recognize the Epson over the USB Printer Sharing but where I'm supposed to see it in the Chooser or something I can't seem to get it there.

I have it selected and checked in the USB PS Control Panel but it won't show up in the Chooser.... Can you help? Got any suggestions or fixes??

Did you install the Epson driver on the iBook? You need the driver installed locally for USB printer sharing to work.

Yes, as neutrino said, install the printer drivers as if you were going to connect the printer to the iBook instead. Then the icon should show up in the chooser just like normal. Basically the mac will think that the printer is connected to the computer, so you have to install the drivers like you normally would.
