Ken, 
I have looked into the User guides (download from:
http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=50128 )
It appears that the LW 11g does not yet support TCP/IP printing.
We are using the LW 16/600 PS which does.

Also with the ROM-update the IIg does not support TCP/IP.

if you like to see our config page:
http://www.syscom-europe.nl/futurebasic/ken/

so you need AppleTalk/LocalTalk on your XP
or Maybe the Win 2000 machine can share its printer?

Jan
