Okey. Whats then the right way to initialize the drivers on the server?

I installed the printer drivers through the wizard on the server as
mentioned in the manuals about samba. Then I set up the standard values
for the printer driver on the server. So I thought that so the drivers
are correctly initialised. But I also saw that the clients do not honor
this settings...
