usb+epsonc80+Samba print sharing problem

I have been having a lot of issues sharing my printer on mandy 9.2 kernel 2.4
I have now gotten very close. The windows computer (xp) can detect the printer but then it says that my linux comp wants to load a driver.
I'm like sure why not.
then it gets says driver is wrong!!!
plz pick driver from list...
then it doesn't have my epsonc80 on the list
I load a compatible driver(stylus 400 drivers I read are compatible)
then it says printer isn't accessible

I also can't use parallel port b/c of very very very messed up printing (all black pages and ink gets everywhere....
any ideas?
any thing else I should post?
