Just got a few new nice machines in the office (a P4 2ghz to replace my 1.2ghz celeron) and they came stock with XP Pro (Dude, we got Now the only thing I cant connect them to is an HP 450c Plotter on a Linksys printserver.

Nope, not USB, the HP 450c s attached to a linksys network printserver with 3 parallel ports.

Finally got it working after fiddling with drivers ans IP settings.
