Hi Stefano

I have had this issue too.

What worked for me:

Once the printer has been added locally, go to printer properties (for
relevent printer), Choose the advanced tab, then clck on new driver, and
select the relevent driver.

Once this is completed (click apply on main properties window), you can then
goto the sharing tab, and add additional drivers (for win9x etc).

Of course, YMMV.
