Installing networked HP Photosmart 2575 Printer

I am trying to install a HP Photosmart 2575 Printer that is network connected to a XP Home computer. The software on the install disk does not work. Can this be done manually.

Hello Steve
This is exactly what I have been trying to do. The installation gets to point 17 and then asks to reboot. After the reboot nothing else happens. The install program is supposed to relaunch but does not seem to. Is it possible to manuallly add the printer?

OK, try the folowing, that is if there is an IP Address assigned to the printer.

Goto Printers and Faxes
Sellect 'Add a printer'
Select 'local printer attached to this computer', uncheck 'Automatically detect and install'
Select Next
Select 'Create a new port'
In 'Type of port' select 'Standard TCP/IP Port
Select Next
Select Next
Enter the IP address as allocated to the printer.
Select Next
Select the printer from the list if it exists, if not then select the nearest to it
If you get the option 'have disc' then look for the directory that would have been made by the software you installed before.

Hope some or all of this gets the problem sorted.
