Unhappy Linux box won't print across LAN to XP box LPT1

Hi: This is similar to some other posts, but maybe a little different?

I have Win ME and RedHat 9 dual booting on box "A". Either system will talk through my LAN to the internet connection on box "B". "B" runs WIN XP. Box "A" when running Win ME can print to Box "B", but not when "A" is running Linux.

What more do I need to specify to enable some help?

Thanks in advance!!!

You may give Samba a try. Many have reported success.
