With printing, there's Print Center.

To connect to another computer on your network, in the finder go to 'Go' menu and click connect to server.

Does that work for wireless networks as well?
How do you print from one computer on a wireless network to a printer attached to another computer on the wireless network?

I forsee a day when maybe a Chooser-like app exists (using Renzvous, CUPS, ZeroConfig, AppleTalk(?),etc).
I think this app will help Classic Mac OS users converts. It may help them feel more comfortable by using a all-in-one network browser app for file and print services again. i have heard many new OS X users say "hey, where's my Chooser!?"
Just a thought..

You don't need the chooser anymore. If you want to fax something, click "File" then "Print" and in the print dialog box you have a "pulldown" where you can select the printer or fax you want to use.
to connect to a network, click "command" + "k" when you are in the finder.
hope this helps.

You wait for OS X 10.2 to come out this weekend! USB printer sharing makes its glorious return.
Anyone out there with a developer copy tried it? Do shared printers show up in the Print Center, or what?

How about connecting to windows servers? I know it's possible, but I can't really seem to find it.
