This one should have the files for the Win9x clients:
The "Universal" one possibly contains the files for the WinNT/2K/XP
Possibly you can unpack this file with "cabextract", "unzip" or "expand".
If that doesn't work, you'd need to install them on a WinNT/2K/XP box
once and manually retrieve them via "smbclient" accessing the "print$"
share (or looking in "C:\Windows\system32\spool\driver..."

Not that I know... (legality, legality...)

"cupsaddsmb" grabs them there and puts them into "/etc/samba/drivers/"
if you run it. "/etc/samba/drivers/" will then be accessible to the
clients as the "print$" share.
Please also read my previous mail.
