You don't write how exactly is your printer connected - if I remember correctly, HP LJ 4P doesn't have a USB connector, and Vostro doesn't have the parallel port available. So how did you connect it? Is it via some USB to parallel adaptor, or via JetDirect network card in the printer? There are multiple separate issues that may be applicable in either case...
Does Vista see the printer when you plug it in to your Dell? You can go to HP web site and down load the drivers for Vista if Vista does not have the drivers already. The key is to bring up Vista and then plug the USB cable into Dell and Vista should tell you it found a new device. If Vista does not have the drivers, unplug the printer and down load the drivers for Vista from HP, follow the instructions from HP and it should work.
