thoughts are clear ----

HOWTO says

A - install the ADOBE POSTSCRIPT file onto a windows machine - check
B - SHARE that printer  - check
C - Grab the specified files from the print$ share on the windows machine
    -- none are there...
D - Place them into: /usr/share/cups 
E - run the cupsaddsmb

I never said I was uploading files to the print server using the APW,
all I said was I was trying to find the necessary ADOBE files for use
with the cupsaddsmb, which requires an install of the drivers onto a
standalone machine -- which could be confusing since you need to get
the files off the client that you will eventually be installing again,
though this time from the server

If I am missing something, I apologize, but I am following the HOWTO
as described

Now you're talking about /usr/share/cups which
