I wanted to find out if this solution worked. I am also trying to share
a printer on a WinXP Pro workstation to the network using iPrint but am
having problems. On iManager, when viewing the status of the printer,
it says "Gateway not bound to printer agent." Any info would be
appreciated.

I have no idea how you configured your pritner, but something must be
seriously wrong in your configuration if it already causes the gateway to
fail to load. This can only mean that the load strong for the gateway is
wrong, possibly due to illegal characters in the printer name.

I suggest you read the following TID which gives a very comprehensive
description on how to configure NDPS (and iPrint) for a locally attached
printer:
