Just a few thoughts. You need to install the XP driver for the printer on the XP machine, install the w2k and XP drivers on the w2k machine, the printer must be set to shared on the w2k machine. You should have the same account name and password for both machines. And make sure that the XP firewall or any other firewall is not preventing communications between the two machines.
