I found a workaround to the above problem. For 9x/ME clients I use the Adobe
PostScript Installer to add network printer instead of Add Printer from
Windows. Adobe PostScript Installer won't prompt me file not found. It gives
me an option to overwrite pdfprinter.PPD. If I choose Yes to overwrite,
everything works fine. I hope this is helpful to anyone who might experience
this problem.
