Sharing a printer (HP Laser Jet 1320) on a Windows XP 32 bit PC

Now on Windows 7 64 bit PC trying to connect to that shared printer, it says it needs a driver so I say ok let's find a driver locally for it. Locate it and hit ok... gives me error...

Connect to Printer
Windows cannot connect to printer.


Tried numerous drivers and get same error. Is this a issue with connected a Windows 7 64 to Windows XP 32?

Downloading drivers straight from HP site.

Turns out I needed a PCL 5 driver... for some reason it did not like PCL 6 drivers...
