Hi, I have a canon s330 printer which does not have drivers for linux. As I really need to use the printer, I have decided to install windows xp on my system via virtualbox.

I'm trying to network ubuntu with xp so that I can share the printer; however, I'm running into issues. It appears that in order to get this to work, I need to do more than just to put both OSs on the same workgroup.

Do you guys have any suggestion on how I can accomplish this?
