Hello, Samba-Team, hello samba-freaks!

Hey! World-Hello-Day was yesterday, but today is although a good day to say "hello"!

My question/problem:
I like to use a samba-server as printer-server for about >500 users with ~ 40 different printers.
The client OS is NT4 or XP. The problem I encountered is that there are printerdrivers out there which use for different models dlls with the same name but the dlls are not compatible - great!! - ! So only the last installed printer works ok, because the dll for the other model is overwritten during driverinstall.
My question: Is there a tool, which allows save tempering with the *.tdb, to change the path to the driverfiles or to change the behavior to rpc "getdriverinfo"?
This way it would be possible to create an own driver-directory-structur and all those printerdriver related problems are gone...
