I dont want to _add_ new printers. I just want to _upload_ the drivers
to the samba server as explained in the printer_driver2.html doc which i
am not able to do.

Makes sense. But my problem is that i cant seem to upload it. The wizard
does not even make an attemp to upload the driver which it previusly
used to but would later die. 

IIRC, this behaviour started after i used the local APW and installed the
printer driver locally. I tried deleting the printer from control panel
-> printers but no dice.

Question: How does one make Win2K and samba "forget" all the printer
related settings?
