To connect using a hub, you will require a straight through Cat 5 patch cable for each machine. Connect the cables to the machine and then to the hub. Set the ip address on both machines to the same subnet (ie and both with the same netmask ( for example). This should allow them to see each other. As for the printer, is it actually a network printer with a network interface or just a standard usb/parallel?

If it is a usb/parallel simply install as normal and then if you right click the printer (from Printers and Faxes) you can then click 'sharing' and give it name etc. however I'm not sure if suse will see it... Not tried accessing printers attached to XP from linux. The best way is to attach it to your suse machine and put it in Samba - that way XP will be able to use it too!!
