[Samba] Printer drivers not showing up

I'm trying to set up Samba 2.2.5 as a printer server, and want to upload
drivers to it which will be available for network users should they want to
use the printers I'm sharing.

I have set up my printcap, set up the print$ and printers shares as per
Gerald Carter's book "Teach yourself Samba in 24 Hours". The printers show
up shared on the server as you would expect in Windows (XP Pro). So I try to
upload the drivers by going to properties and adding the appropriate driver.
It uploads it to the server as you would expect. But the checkbox stays
unchecked, as though Windows doesnt know there are drivers there, despite it
having just uploaded them.

Any ideas for this? I'm using LDAP as my user database, and RH7.2 if any of
that makes any difference.
