Hmmm...This means that using the design currently in 
place in HEAD, user's cannot **just** distribute 
Win9x drivers for clients.  An Admin must also install
WinNT drivers even if there are no NT clients.  

This means that 2.0.7 is able to do something HEAD

ok.  Here are some possible scenarios...

1)	Admin wants to install only a WinNT driver.
	No problem.  Can install a 9x driver
	later by specifying the printer name to 
	install the driver for.

2)	Admin wants to install NT & 9x drivers.
	No problem again.  Follow the same step as
	in #1

3)	Admin wants ot install Windows 9x driver only.

Good question.  I'll check on it.
