Network Printing with XP Pro issues

Here is a modified post from the discrete editors forum:
I have 4 computers on a home network. ONE XP Pro, TWO XP Home, and ONE Intel MacBookPro (which I'm very happy with). Some things are working and some aren't.
Parallels is installed and works great. After an initial hiccup corrected by adding permissions, all computers are recognized in My Network Places (including the Mac), and files can be shared - so far.
As for 2 printers: the Epson Stylus Photo R200(?) & an HP Officejet k80xi work wirelessly with the MacBook Pro, but only through Parallels and XP Pro. I cannot get either to print wirelessly through the OSx wirelessly. I did get (I think) the Epson to print out throught he MBP's USB port. I installed the latest Epson Intel drivers, but there are no HP drivers available. I dl'd the suggested GIMP linux driver, but still no luck with either. FYI, the Epson is recognized by OSx, but nothing prints, the HP prints out computer settings, but not the doc.
Are we all still with me? Suggestions? And thanks,
