Error installing HP printer (0x000003e3) on Vista

I'm trying to hook up to a HP 3550 that's hooked to an XP machine. Other XP
machines can access and the Vista machine can see it but produces this error
(0x000003e3) when it tries to install the driver.

Any help obviously appreciated. Thanks.

Google on that error shows up that Alan Morris here dealt with a
problem involving that error message although perhaps under different
circumstances so watch out for a reply from him.

Normally the XP driver won't work on Vista.

Create a Local printer
Create a Local Port in the form\\XPmachine\printshare
Add HP Vista driver
Next...
Finish

Thank you guys so much! I have been trying to solve my printing problem for weeks. I finally sat down tonight, determined to fix it before I went to bed. All my printouts kept coming out centered on the page!

This simple solution fixed it beautifully!
