i finally got the network working but the XP box wont print.
first I have a win 7 box and a win XP box connected through a linksys router
second I have an HP 3030 PCL 5 all in one prinrer
sharing the printer was no problem till I got win 7
The win 7 box needs additional drivers to suppot the xp box to print

MS TechNet discussion of the issue for what it's worth.
