AHH im goin crazy(windows xp related)

Hi all,

I may have posted this before not sure but i did not find anything in the search...

Ok after extensive searching i have come up with nothing.

My problem is that i have a printer connect through usb on a windows xp system and i have another mandrake linux system. I am trying to print from mandrake to xp but using the printer drake in mandrake control centre it cannot detect the printer automatically. But using linneighbourhood to scan the network i can see the printer on the xp computer. Again im trying to print from linux to windows any suggestions?????? I seriously need help and i cannot move the printer.

Thanx in advance
