    You need to add Fax Services to the server.

    start -> control panel -> add/remove programs -> windows components.
    Make sure Fax Services is checked. If not, check it and install the service.
    Then follow the wizard to share the Fax printer on the network.
    Once that is done, on your XP clients, go to \\servername or surf to the server via My Network Places and install the fax printer.

    That should be all you need to do.
