Well, the thing is I'm unable to add the drivers using the APW because
of this message... so at that point the printer is driverless... no
Adobe dlls yet or any other dlls for that matter.

I am able to add the drivers using rpcclient, but for this particular

rpcclient adddriver'ed drivers... so I started fresh with the APW

I'm supposed to get a printer properties window (despite the fact that
there is no driver associated with it), and use that to associate the
driver with it (like rpcclient setdriver).
