Networking Epson Stylus Photo RX620 througha print server

Hello:
I have a epson stylos Photo rx620 printer wich i am trying to network through a linksys  print server.

When i install the driver on windows XP and network it the printer will work. But when i reboot,  the printer states that it is not ready. No matter what driver i install i also get the epson status monitor comming up and that trys to find the printer, Which it cant because it is a network printer.

any ideas how i could network through the print server.

Thanks

I have tried that,  I have also downloaded a different driver.  It seams that the status monitor is somehow preventing the printer to print throught the print server. I have tried to shut down the status monitor but the thing still pops up and tries to locat the printer.

Well thanks for your efforts but i have solved it.

The solution was very simple for any of you that ever run into this.  What i found is after the install it worked great but on a reboot it displayed in printer properties that printer was off line.  So to solve that i right clicked the printer and selected "use printer online" and WALA the printer worked even on rebbot it still kept the online status. Wiered i know but it turned out to be a simple solution.
