I figured that you may be there was some sort of auto-configuration  
option on the CUPS server.

Some other things you could look at would be as follows :

	- If you are using a customized image you could
           try a fresh default XP install
	- Try printing directly to the printer rather than
            via a cups print server

	- Try printing from a different operating system

Hopefully this helps.
All the best!
