You have to get the EXACT driver for the EXACT model of that printer. You cannot use "Universal" drivers, even though these will be the main ones available on the HP website.

You should consider the idea of sharing out the printer from a 64 bit OS instead.

HP tech support will tell you that if the printer doesn't have a "DN" or a "N" at the end of the model number, it most likely will not support networking capabilities.
