Question Can't print by using smb printer


2day's ago i started with installing slackware 9.0. Everything runs now, even with the new nvidia drivers. I have one huge problem though..., i cannot print. I hope someone can provide me some info.

The situation:

i have a small network. 2 computers attached to a router, with the 10.0.0.X 255.255.255.x racnge. My girlfriends pc is running winxp pro, and a printer is attached to that pc. My pc is running Slackware 9.0.

I would like to print to the printer attached to the winXP machine.

What i tried:
i tried to setup a smb printer from the kde control panel. when i had to browse, i entered a valid username and password, i saw the workgroup and i saw the hostnamer of the winxp machine. i also saw the shared printer. So i thought it was easy. when i tried to print a test page... nothing happend. I even rebooted my machine. (old windows habbit )

The printer driver was found, and it's a comon one, the hp deskjet 640C

Did i miss something? is there something i forgot to do? I spend several hours on it without success. even read some manuals

Thanks in advance for everyone who responds to this message.
