unable to print properly from XP machine w/HPLJ4200 install on. Windows 2000 Server

Have anyone run into a problem with Windows XP professional when print to a HPLJ4200 printer which is install on Windows 2000 Server. I already try PC5/6 driver. But it still doesn't work. It only occurs to Windows XP machine, all other windows 2000 Professional machine are printing fine. Also, it only occurs with the HPLJ4200 model, the 4100, and HPLJ 4plus has no problem at all.
