Can you send me a copy of these drivers?

This would be a good guess.

btw...I've added a 'setdriver' command to rpcclient so you
can add a driver once and then lop over a list to set the
driver for installed printers.  It's a little rough around 
the edges right now.  I think it corrupts the comment field
currently :)

You'll need to grab the latest SAMBA_2_2 CVS code.  Also
see the updated .../docs/htmldocs/printer_driver2.html
