Print sharing -- why can't I print?

    I have an HP Deskjet 720 series connected to my machine running Win XP Pro.
    My home network is running through a Linksys BEFSR41 and I have enabled
    print sharing.

    I have another computer on the network running WinME and I am trying to get
    that computer to be able to print to that printer. I install the printer
    drivers, during the install it does not give me the option of adding a
    network printer -- only one on the LPT ports. After I install, I go into the
    printer properties and change the port browsing for the printer on the
    network. I can see it, and select it.

    However, I cannot seem to print to it. It gives me the error that there is
    no connection to the printer. What am I doing wrong?
