Yeah, I had a similar problem. A coworker and I found a Windows NT box and
set it up to broadcast the IP address whenever it changed through some dorky
little macros that went into the Control Panel, found the printer, copied
the IP address, and sent it out in an email if changed.

Kind of messy, but it was easier than actually having to find a Windows box
and grab the IP off it.
