Default Computer does not recognize printer attached to another comput

DAD's is running XP Prof, MOM's has XP Home.
DAD's printer sharing is on, has the shared hand. Printer's name=Brother.

Are these both Windows XP?

if MOM can see both DAD and MOM in Network Places, you already did the hard
part. The printer should be listed in a Printers and Faxes folder in the DAD
folder. It is not?

On DAD, open Printers and Faxes, right-click on the printer and choose
Properties. What does it say on the Sharing page?

In trying to setup a printer on MOM's computer within the workgroup
the computer does not see the printer that's attached to DAD's computer.
structure shows this:
- Microsoft Network Group
I'm expecting to see a printer under DAD that I could use, but there's no
printer name. Could anyone shed some solution?
