[Samba] Using working devmode from windows clients on samba server?

Samba 2.2.7a (built from samba RPM's) with LPRng print subsystem.

I've been having troubles with some print drivers which fail to work
properly when uploaded to the samba server whether devmode gets left as
null or a default devmode is used.  Some drivers do not leave you in a
position where you can "tickle" the driver to generate a devmode with
page orientation etc before things start misbehaving.  Stuff usually
works when the client installs their own drivers locally.  Is there any
way to grab the devmode generated by the windows clients and inject it
some place in samba's files to get a working devmode so driver downloads
with spools can work with these drivers?

Thanks for any suggestions,
~ Daniel
