xp is simple, downloads the drivers for you after you set up the printer.

the easiest way I found was set up a tcp/ip port using the printers ip addy

then it will ask what is the printer and set up the drivers for it

Using the disk at every station is the easiest though.

Most people hear "IP" and turn into mindless idiots....lol
