ACCESSING LOCAL PRINTER IN COMMAND MODE ON AN XP

Have a HP3800 AS LOCAL PRINTER ON SYSTEM "\\XP",   ONE OF FOUR SYSTEMS IN A LANTASTIC NETWORK.  PRIINTER IS SUCCESSFULLY ACCESED WITHIN WINDOWS APPLICATIONS ON XP AND IN BOTH
WINDOWS APPS AND COMMAND MODE ON OTHER SYSTEMS IN A  LANTASTIC NETWORK.

BUT I CANNOT GET COMMAND MODE ON \\XP TO ASSOCIATE LPT1 TO THE LOCAL HP3000, WHIICH HAS NAMES OF 3800hp and 3800ps.(Either name can be used because files sent to this printer are already
formatted in either HPCL or PostScrpt and the printer can tell which mode to print with)

TRIED USIING  NET USE LPT1 \\xp\3800hp /PERSISTENT:YES  TO LET WINDOW NETWORKNG AS ACT
INTERFACE FOR COMMAND MODE ASSOCATION FOR THIS LOCAL PRINTER. BUT GOT MESSAGE

System Error 66 has occurred.
The network resource type is not correct.

Same message when I used LPT1:

Any ideas?  How does one let Command mode in XP that a local printer is available?. I just
want the XP  to be able to be used in DOS mode.
