To be a little more precise...

The best howto I fount is :

However, when comes the step to click the "New Driver" in the Advanced Tab,
The New Driver button is in gray and I can't click on it.

Of course I have read/write access to //server/print$/WIN32X86/

What should I do ?


When you browse to \\server\print$ in windows explorer can you create a new
directory / file ?

If not temporarily change to: read only = no
