i don't know if this could solve your problem as you don't give enough 
detail (did  you use cupsaddsmb? etc) but the description (lpadmin -D) you 
give when creating your printer in cups must match the nickname in your ppd 
file for the ppd to be recognized, copied to the proper location,  then 
downloaded automatically by your win clients
