Network Printer(Using MEPIS)

MEPIS QUESTION that they werent able to answer on the mepis forum

I've had a problem setting up a Deskjet 832c with my network.. On the XP box it recognizes my Linux box and on LInux it recognizes XP. I added Linux printing support in the windows components of the XP box (which is the computer that the printer is connected to). Someone else told me to disable bi-directinal support under the printer(on the xp box) which i also did but still when i click the computer icon OFFICE (thats the XP box) under add printer it still says access denied I'm a big fan of mepis but this would be a huge drawback if i can't get it to print.

One more thing. I can access that computer's files via the Samba client but when i go to add printer it says ACCESS DENIED

I've also made myself a member of the lp and lpadmin group and the firewall on the other computer is configured to allow file and print sharing.

Any advice on where to go from here? Thx in advance
