connecting to networked printer



I have an HP Photosmart 7550 printer that is attached to a server running XP. I also have a wireless laptop running Vista that I am trying to connect through a wireless router to the server which is hard wired to the router. I can network to the server and see the printer there but when I double click on it I get the following error: "The server for the HP Photosmart 7550 printer does not have the correct printer driver installed" I have two other XP computers wired through the router that have no problem printing using the 7550 driver installed in the server. Any ideas? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You have to install the Vista version of the software and the printer's
drivers on the Vista computer.
Then create the initial connection with the HP printer management software.
