No, drivers are not installed on Samba server.
In fact, I don't want to install them there at all.
Windows 2000 already has these drivers bundled with the system, so I'd 
rather use these than download these drivers from Samba server (doing so 
for a dial-up laptoper who has this "install printer" script over a slow 
dial-up connection would force him/her into downloading several 
megabytes of drivers that are already on the laptop, wouldn't it?).
