But can you now just print with it instead of typing the location, or do u still have to do that?

No - I can just press print.

I don't need to mess with the printer at all (other than select it from the drop-down in whatever programme I'm in!)

So some progress has been made from the original problem at the top of this thread?
Basically it sounds to me that you do not have the access that you want to the xp machine from the me machine, and your printer takes too long to actually print. Is this correct? If so we will then begin to figure this slow printing problem out, and I will find some new information about the networking of a ME os to an XP os.

First of all, I would re-run the Network Setup Wizard on both PCs to join a new workgroup (Ex: MSHOME). Make sure you checked Enable File and Print sharing on both PCs. Once the PCs are in the same workgroup; Go to the XP computer, right click on the Printer and make a Share. Then go to the ME computer, choose Add Printer > Add Network Printer and follow the installation wizard to complete the installation. Now you can try a print test. Good luck!
