Printer file not found

I sometimes use my PowerBook 5300 as a printer server for my Performa 640.  I connect my StyleWriter to the PB and turn on printer share.  The 2 computers are linked via Farallon's AirDock.  When I open the chooser in the 640 and select the printer, "Shared Printer" appears on the right.  I select this.  Then when I print a document from the 640, the document spools but then I get an error message that says "File not found".  This happened to me one other time but I forget what I did to fix it.

If I switch to Appletalk from LocalTalk Bridge, I'll lose my ethernet connection.  I did not used to have this problem so I know I should not have to switch connections.

I will have to look into Rifty's question about the driver.  It could be that I lost the driver on the 640 for some reason.
