What are the security settings on the printer shared from the XP Home
Printer, Properties, Security
Verify Everyone is allowed Print rights.
Also on the XP machine, verify that the Guest account is enabled since you
do not require passwords (it sounds like it already is).
Also from the Vista machine, you should be able to view the directory
contents of the print$ share on the XP machine
If you do not get the directory list then you will need access to this to
get the driver files.
