I don't imagine you have 183 different printer models.

server, accessing the "printers" folder, and right clicking on each printer
to install drivers.
I've managed to get W2K/NT and Win98/95 drivers "pushed" to my Samba box
from a W2K server for two of my printers  ... but this will be very time
consuming for 183 printers.
Has anyone out there figured out a way to automate this for large number of
