Samba does not currently support the downloading of printer drivers to NT
clients (yet).  The current solution is to install the driver locally (on
the NT client).  Once the necessary printing rpc calls have been
implemented in the Samba tree, NT will be able to download the drivers
from the Samba box automatically.
