I'm setting a printer on samba 2.0.5a under red hat 6.1
In win95 I can download printer drivers.
But there is a problem with win2k.
The printer name is recognized by win2k box, but drivers are not
The error msg:

The Server on which the `HP LaserJet 5/5M PostScript' printer resides
does not have the correct printer driver installed.

And then the box offers to install driver on your local computer.

>From Windows 2000 Printer Test Page I took
driver name: pscript5.dll,
data file: hplj5m_4.ppd
config file: ps5ui.dll
help file: pscript.hlp
and additional file used by that driver: pscript.ntf

And put all those files into `printer driver location'
The following line (I've splitted it by ':") is from my printer driver

HP LaserJet 5/5M PostScript:
PostScript Language Monitor:

The following info is from the log:
