Linux drivers:
Epson Stylus Photo RX500 - Cups+Gimp-Printv.4.2.7

XP machine:
I downloaded and unzipped epson11326.exe.

Here's the info about the drivers from Epson's website:
Windows XP, Windows 2000
epson11326.exe - 7.7MB - posted on 02/01/05

I also tried the epson11376.exe with the same results.

I got this error message "Windows cannot locate a suitable printer driver. Contact administrator..." after selecting the driver.

I selected "Connect to a printer on the Internet or on a home or office work" option (third option) and enter:

http://192.168.1.90:631/printers/Epson

This allowed me to use the epson11326.exe drivers.

I decided to install my laser printer (Brother HL5140) this way too and it's also working great from the XP machine.

CUPS did not recognize any drivers for Brother, therefore I still can't use it from my linux machines.

What did you mean with recognize? You have to select the driver in the list. Or is your printer not listed there, then you should have a look at linuxprinting.org if your printer is supported by cups.

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!
