Do they launch when you log in as another user?
The printer and the computer must be on the same subnet. Is the Airport Express acting distributing IP addresses? If so your devices are on different subnets. I don't have an Airport Express, but I know that Airport Basestations can be put into bridging mode to pass addresses from the router upstream... Hope this helps
What exactly is the error message that you get? Also this has worked for me: when booting from the OSX install cd launch Terminal and start deleting files and directories until the installer will proceed.

Yes the router settings sound correct. The address you will use is the one you chose when you set up your dyn-dns service.
