Set up web printers in IIS 5.1

Can someone please help me set up my printers to be available from my web/print server.

I have installed IIS on Windows XP pro. (only version 5.1)
I already had my printers setup and shared before IIS was installed.
IIS is working and is allowing me to run web page, but the printers folder is not available.

I have done this before in Windows Server 2003 and it just worked.
Here i am having issues allowing printers to be available on web page.

I have now figured out that in this version (IIS5) i must manually link to the printers in the windows directory.
c:\windows\web\ipp_0001.asp - i presume this is correct. The old 2000 server is set up like this.
The issue is now, is - is this correct, because when i view via web page i can not view status of printers. It just advises not possible contact system admin.
