Automatic printer driver downloads for NT and Windows 2000
machines is supported in the HEAD branch, if you are keen to
compile it up yourself, or from one of the 2.2.0 alpha releases.

You can read about configuring it in the PRINTER_DRIVER2.txt file
in the documentation directory for these versions of Samba.
