[Samba] Please Help. Samba as PDC and printing

I'm getting the same message with a HP 940c printer driver and a W2KPro sp2

But with the "Only text printer driver" that ships with W2K everything works
fine. I tried that for testing only, though.

Finally I had to set the "printer client driver = yes" and manually install
the driver on every w2k box.
