serving printer drivers to winnt/win95 machines

I am investigating the possibility of using a samba server to provide
printer drivers for installation on client machines where the client
doesn't already have an appropriate driver installed.  I thought the
"printer driver" directive and the $print share would achieve this for me
but I can't seem to get it to work.

Am I on the right track or way off base?  some help in this would be great.

my current setup is FreeBSD and samba-1.9.17p2
