thank you very much,
I have one more question concerning the command line installation of the 
x64 driver
We are using the native windows Postscript-Driver and cups
 I will do a (according to the docs)

*|smbclient //localhost/print\$ -U 'root%xxxx' \
	-c 'cd x64; \
	put /etc/cups/ppd/mysmbtstprn.ppd mysmbtstprn.PPD; \ 
	put /usr/share/cups/drivers/ps5ui.dll ps5ui.dl; \
	put /usr/share/cups/drivers/pscript5.dll pscript5.dll; \
	put /usr/share/cups/drivers/pscript.hlp pscript.hlp'|*

But what do I have to use for the rpcclient adddriver command instead 
of  *|"Windows NT x86"|*

*|rpcclient -Uroot%xxxx -c 'adddriver "Windows NT x86" \
	"mydrivername: |**|pscript5.|**|dll:mysmbtstprn.PPD: \
  |**|ps5ui|**|.dll:pscript.hlp:NULL:RAW:NULL"' \

*|rpcclient -Uroot%xxxx -c 'setdriver mysmbtstprn mydrivername' \


It might be usefull, to add this info to the howto collection,
when people more and more start using x64 systems
