Best option is to install the printer as a local printer (install the drivers on the local machine) and then afterward, redirect the ports tab to the ip address and not the lpt port.

Here is a Technet article on how to do this with a Win2K client and a NT4 print server:

IT works also for XP clients (I've done it myself). Basically, you are gonna push the drivers FROM the XP box to the Win2K print server, so make sure your XP machine has the drivers. It's a pretty nice trick, actually.
