Its 02-23-2012 and the instructions of Dave Mod above worked swimmingly.
A couple comments on my specific hardware may be helpful.
OS on computer sharing printer - win xp 32bit
OS on computer accessing printer - win 7 ultimate 64bit
HP Laserjet P1606dn -- downloaded latest and greatest from hp but the installation was so automated that that it only offered a USB installation or a network installation that required a MAC address. Both alternatives were dead ends. I then tried an installation using the drivers that cam with the OS and was offered a LTP1 port and it went smoothly from there.
Epson Styles Photo R1600 - after downloading the 64bit drivers I started the installation. I was offer a manual installation or an automated installation. After selecting the manual installation and selecting the LPT1 port it went smoothly from there.
And thanks that I still remember something of UNC (universal naming convention) from my early experiences with using scripts for network setups when the computer was rebooted.
Thanks to all,
P.S. Without having previously read these posts, I would not have bought the 64bit OS.
