How did you upload the drivers?  Did you get any errors toward the end
of this process?  Did you use drivers for IBM Infoprint 1222 that came
with windows or some other source?  Some manufacturer provided drivers
do not behave when remote uploaded to samba.  I'm not sure if it's ever
been tracked down to anything specific.  But I've ended up in a
situation (with KM KX drivers) where the print share is associated with
the correct printer model, but got your error that no driver was
installed.  And an rpcclient deldriver did not work, because it was
associated with the print share (had to setdriver it to something else
or remove that print share first).  Sorry can't be of more help, but I'd
try a different driver if there are any available, and contact any
support/help email address or list associated with the IBM Infoprint
drivers and let them know it isn't behaving with samba.
