You don't. As long as the drivers have been installed on the Samba server via the method mentioned in the Samba HOW-TO docs and in this list on numerous occasions. The numbers you go after the script has ran are error codes. I suggest you look these up in the Kixtart manual and see whats going wrong.
This is the setup i'm using at my site. I have a print server with about 15 printers attached and over 450 workstations map to this server everyday using the method above. It works great!
