[Samba] Howto delete printer driver for only one architecture?

Hello everybody,

we have a lot of printers shared by samba, which are still offering the old 
"version 2" W32X86 style print drivers, though most of our clients have 
been upgraded to w2k and above meanwhile. Therefore I would like to delete 
these old drivers, but I don't know how to achieve this without deleting 
the drivers for all architectures (with rpcclient -c "deldriver... ").
It seems that there's an rpcclient command missing from the SPOOLSS stuff.
Any hints?

If I delete the drivers for all architectures and afterwards add those 
which I really need, what happens to the configuration data which had been 
saved to ntprinters.tdb? Will it survive the deletion of the corresponding 
drivers or do I have to repeat all the configuration?
Thank you!
