Samba is not required to print from Windows XP client via CUPS.

How did you obtain this URL.
The best way to obtain the URL is to simply open http://server:631/printers
The main page contains a link for all installed printers. Open the link for
your printer, and the resulting URL is the URL that Windows XP should be
configured to use.
> There wasn't exactly my printer model, so I choose HP DeskJet driver
This is very unlikely. HP not shipping a Windows driver for your printer is
just as likely as me winning the lottery. You most certainly have the
drivers for your HP printer on a CD. After you've specified the URL when
setting up the CUPS printer in Windows XP, you'll be asked to select a
driver. Select the appropriate driver from the CD. The last component of the
CUPS URL has absolutely nothing to do with the driver name.
