we need more info to give you specifics...what windows version, what model numbers on the printers (namely, are they parallel or usb?)
there is no problem having two printers on one computer. as long as you can get them connected to the computer. the problem probably is going to be that usually you only have one parallel port on a computer. so you can either add a second parallel port (via a add-in card) or you can purchase a parallel a-b switch box. hook both printers to it, and one cable from the switch back to your computer. kinda expensive as you need a special cable plus the switch...
