[Samba] PCL vs. PCL 6

I am currently using samba to try and replace a windows NT box
as the default print server.  All is working well except for
one printer driver.  All drivers were installed from a win2k 
machine onto the samba print$ share.  

The problem that I'm having is with a driver for the HP laser
jet 4000N printer.  The PCL driver works and loads quickly.
The PCL 6 driver works, but the properties window loads very
slowly.  Unfortunately, to convince my boss to switch to the 
samba server, I'll have to be able to support the PCL 6 at the
same speed as the NT box.

The boxes are identical in hardware.  Does anyone have any
suggestions as to how I can speed up the loading of the PCL 6
