Printer Error for Users, not Admin

Here is my scenario. I have a home network set up with an HP Photosmart 2610
printer set up as a network printer, a PC running XP with 7 user accounts set
up (2 admin and 5 limited use), an Apple iBook, and a Dell laptop.

When it comes to printing, the Dell and the Apple can print ok. As for the
PC, only the two Admin accounts can print. All the other accounts get the
error "Failed to print." Looking at the System Event Log I see Event ID 6161
for these occurances.

What do I need to do to fix this problem, other than give everybody admin
rights?

Roger.

It is perfectly useless to know the right answer to the wrong question.
