Thank you. I thought I was going crazy. I clearly do not have that. Only 2 printers. I could reinstall 6.0.8, or try to start up from disks just to see. Or wait to see what files I am missing. I do see AppleShare in my systems folder but it is not making it into the Chooser.
It sounds like AppleShare on the Plus is missing some bits and/or not starting. You should see an AppleShare icon in the left hand pane of the Chooser regardless of whether there is anything on the network to talk to or not. I think on System 6 you also need a couple of other files (AppleShare Prep and Responder?) to make it go (my memory is rusty, I don't regularly use System 6).
