I tried 'admin' no luck I then tried my new administrator password (set when we re-installed XP - I forgot it was differnt to my original one !) and got a new box "Operation could not be completed . Access is denied"
Try admin as the password for the printer
If I type \\ Thomson into the address field in Windows explorer and click 'go' it takes me to 'Samba server (thomson)' the properties of that show - Type - Windows NT 4.9 server and that its in workgroup BT
I Google'd 'Samba server thomson' and all sorts of stuff comes up including THIS - which I will now read - see the section on USB !
PS I'm getting to grips with IE 7 and will have a go at Firefox later
