Are they both in the same workgroup, by default windows 7 uses "workgroup" and Windows home uses "MSHOME", they should both be the same, what you call it does not matter as long as they are both the same. make sure win 7 has network discovery turned on, the printer is shared without a password. The xp machine may need the xp driver for the printer.

remote workstations printer port should be \\windows7pc name\printer share name.

are they? You check via printer properties. I suspect you just have them printing to local usb/lpt port.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.
