Can't seem to print to an XP Pro Shared Printer

I have samba all set up. I am able to ping back and forth with host name and/or IP address. I want to print to the printer that is hooked up to my HP Print Copy Scan 750 that is hooked up to my XP Pro box. I see the printer shared:

root@rich:/home/powerismine/temp# smbclient -L kids
added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
getlmhostsent: too many columns in lmhosts file (obsolete syntax)
Domain=[MSHOME] OS=[Windows 5.1] Server=[Windows 2000 LAN Manager]

C$ Disk Default share

Also I went through the KDE printer setup and tired to have it set it up for me as a SMB printer but no matter what driver I choose it still doesn't print. Do I have to some how mount the printer first???

Thanks Guys

Sorry, I cant help you, but i have the EXACT same problem, only on Slackware with an HP LaserJet 4p on the XP Pro. The Linux Box thinks that it printed, but it really doesnt.
