How to get Windows 7 to share a printer on a Windows 2000/XP machine

I have been getting Windows 7 to work on my PC.

By the way, Windows 7 is wonderful.

Here is the solution to a problem I have been having which I want to record so that I can refer to it in the future. Sorry that this isn't more interesting to the general populace...

Network Share not working through Windows 7 home premium:

How to fix things on Windows 7 so that you can access a Windows 2000 shared printer:
  1. Open registry editor ( Start search - regedit)
  2. Browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa
  3. Create a new DWORD value with the following properties: NAME: LmCompatibilityLevel VALUE: 1
  4. Restart your PC and try the connection again...
