HP Laserjet 1200 - can it be set up as parallel and usb??

I have a hp laserjet 1200 printer.  It is set up with a parallel connection to an older windows 98 pc.  I purchased a new windows xp pc and need to keep the two pc's up and running for a while -- the two pc's are not networked.  Is it possible to connect the windows 98 pc to the printer with a parrallel connection at the same time the new windows xp pro pc could connect to the printer with the usb connection??  Any help is appreciated.  Thank you.
