Adjusting sharing properties should clear this problem up. And, with more than 1 operating system (XP and Vista), the drivers will need to be installed on both computers. What that means is the printer will need installed on both computers, with the HP software. Once that is done, then Printer Sharing must be "checkmarked" in the settings for the C6150 through the control panel/printers folder. Sharing must also be allowed through the properties of the computer's network card. This procedure varies slightly for the 2 operating systems, so I won't try to list the steps here. However, essentially, finding the network card in device manager, and enable File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks. That will hopefully resolve the problem.
