hi, all

I have samba 2.2 as PDC running under AIX. a HP 4100tn is installed and serves printing to all
win98 clients. the printer driver on AIX is for HP 4/4M plus and works fine for all 98 computers.

Now i have joined the xp clients to PDC and only when adding printer, it prompts that 'the server
for the 'hp laserjet 4/4M plus PS' printer does not have the correct printer driver installed. if
you want to serarch for the proper driver , click okay' then i locates the HP 4100tn driver for it
then it complains 'windows cannot locate a suitable printer driver.'

the printer wizard screen doesn't show up as it should. i.e shows a listing of printers to choose
from. it just prompt me for location of driver directly. anyway, i have read the 'using samba'
from oreilly and don't see where the problem is..

what do i do now ?
