10.3: Print from Windows XP to a shared Mac printer

Sorry if I am too stupid to understand but when I follow this I am asked by CUPS for a logon and password - which one do I need?

10.3: Print from Windows XP to a shared Mac printer

I was having problems getting the CUPS interface to work because of the name and password drop-down too.

Using the user-name "root" and it's associated password you can get past this obstacle. If you don't know what the root user is, check Apple's knowledgebase article about enabling the root user:

If this doesn't get you going, post again. There were more complications to my root user story, but they shouldn't be happening to you.
