Ahh, if only that were true...

Samba holds the windows printer drivers for 'point and print'
functionality.  The 'traditional driver disk' (which is the easiest
way to interact with the upload driver function in the windows printer
properties page) can often be downloaded, or you can run the setup on
the windows client, and upload the drivers as part of that setup.

It's a mess, and you may wish to try various methods until you get it
to work...

Of course, you also have to have unix setup to work with that printer
(at least to the stage of printing raw jobs), but that's a sepearte
issue ;-)
