I'm sorry, I meant there were no drivers for Brother listed.

Anyways, after reading the fourms on linuxpring.org I decided to download the HL5140 drivers directly off the Brother website.

It's required to install the LPR drivers first before the CUPS wrappers. I received a few errors installing the LPR drivers, but they were just missing files and folders - which I created myself (assigning proper permission).

I used the following commands to install the packages: dpkg -i --force-all <filename.deb>

Now I can print from both the XP and Linux machines. :-) Again, thanks for the help!
