This is called "Bridged Networking".  It would make your Windows XP
machine more like a physical machine on the network.

However, you still need to share the parallel printer.  You can't have
the physical host and a virtual machine both using the parallel port.
In fact, I'm not sure that you can "forward" the parallel port to the
VM.

One thing to check with your USB device, if you can't get it to work
on a VM - it can't be used by the host system at the same time.  Make
sure its unmounted by the host if you want to use it with the virtual
machine.
