[Samba] Help with CUPS, Windows, d/l print drivers

I've seen various posts to this and other lists about CUPS, Windows
printing, and downloading of drivers for an IPP printer installed on a
Windows machine, the printer being serviced by CUPS.

I have downloaded the respective Windows 9x, 2K, and XP drivers from
manufacturers' sites, and want to find a way to implement them to CUPS, so
if anyone opts to mount a printer via http, the drivers will automatically
download for them, just as they would for mounting the printer off our old
NT 4 Server (which currently relays to CUPS).

We've had CUPS running successfully for over a year, and the final piece
now is to transfer existing Windows users off our NT server and directly
to CUPS, with drivers automatically installing for them.

Any help would be appreciated.
