No I didn't added any printers, but I know how to do it. In short that's
like for windows 95.

There is a DCE/RPC call on \\pipe\spoolss (note the lower case on pipe,
that's one more derivation to the coding standard :-) ), called
GetPrinterDriver from the workstation requesting the drivers, the server
reply if it have the drivers and where they are located. 

After that's a standard Open&X, Read, ... on the Printer$ share.

In order here are the 4 tasks I have to do:

	- do my higher work (diploma, ...)
	- clean what's already done, and do the prs_xx memory stuff
	- write the code to print
	- write the driver support
	And dominate the word ... :)
