Add HP printer to Windows Server 2003

I have been away from the server side of things for awhile so forgot some of the things I used to know.  I have a customer with a HP LJ P2055DN and need to connect it to a Windows Server 2003 network.  From what I read, it appears this printer has a JetDirect or similar item in it; I did set the printer to DHCP and it gave me an address of 192.168.0.34; then I download the universal driver of PCL 6 from HP and setup a new IP Port on the server of the .34 and went thru the steps to share it out but still does not appear in the directory listings - what did I miss or not doing?  Thank you.

Have you shared the printer?. If not just right click the printer on the server then click properties. In there you sould find an option to share the printer.

Restart the Print Spooler on the server, and see if it doesn't show up shortly afterwards in AD.
