I am using Ubuntu 7.04 with Windows XP as a Guest OS, but I'm sure this will work similarly with other Host OS's running XP.
If you go to add the printer in Control Panel on the Guest XP OS, you select Network Printer then select the "Connect to a printer on the Internet or on a home or offfice network" option.
In the URL field below that you need to type it in this format.
The Default Gateway of my XP OS is 10.0.0.2 and my printer name is Photosmart_2570 so mine looked like this.
Then after you click Next it will ask you to install the driver for it.
Edit: BTW Make sure that the internet firewall has the port open otherwise it MIGHT not work.
Hope that helps.
