	I can confirm, this seems to be an XP only issue. Vista prints just fine to 
the same server. I have also confirmed the XP behavior on 2 other boxes. In all 
regards, the behavior is identical, printing basically freezes the application 
and printer dialog (if open) for about 2.5 minutes until everything in XP times 
out, then the documents will actually print, but not before you get the grayed 
boxes and "application not responding" messages.

	What can I send you that would help solve this atavistic printing conundrum? 
Just let me know and I'll be glad to help. Anything so my wife can print. When 
she needs to print, it seems to be an "immediate" thing, every time...
