Default How to install PS printer on XP

I'm putting in a new PC, running XP Home; I can find the PPD file easily enough, but I can't get it to see our main networked printer (just a minor problem, ha ha). The printer is PostScript 3, connected to the router by an Ethernet cable, and talks TCP/IP.

The printer's a bit old, so it's latest installer is for NT4: should I use that?
Is PostScript built in to XP Home, or must I install it?
Do I add a TCP/IP port when setting up a PS printer?

Many thanks!
