Problems with automatic Printerdriver download

we use Samba 2.2.5 as a PDC. Profiles and Printer drivers are stored on 
the server. Server OS is Solaris 7 intel.

HowTo show the problem:
Freshly installed WinNT SP6a Workstation. User Fred logs on. In his 
profile Printer A is defined. User Fred logs off (Please note, that Fred 
didn't print with the freshly downloaded and installed printer driver). 
User Joe logs on. His profile also knows about Printer A. When he tries to 
print on Printer A, the application is terminated by Dr. Watson.

Now any printrequest to Printer A will fail and terminate the calling 
Application. To make the workstation printing again you need to delete all 
registry keys below 
NT x86\Drivers\Version-2 
Print Services\Servers
and all driver files.

Cloud you plese help me to find and solve the problem.

Thanks Thomas
