In order to install the printer on NT workstation you have to be logged in
as administrator.

Also the 'printer driver =' line does not replace the printer driver on NT.
It simply tells NT which printer driver to use if it is already installed
on the workstation.  (Which you must also install as administrator).

Hope this helps
