Thanks Marcos. I had to 'chmod 777 /etc/samba/drivers/W32X86' (for NT
drivers) instead of WIN40 and was able to add the drivers. Then I ran into
WERR_ACCESS_DENIED when I tried to setdriver. I found that changing 'use
client driver = yes' in my smb.conf to 'use client driver = no' solved it.
I am now up and running. I appreciate the help.

- use smbclient to copy all files from
- use chmod to change de default permission on the
/var/lib/samba/printers/WIN40 to 777
- use rpcclient to add the device drivers and register
this driver to the printer
- use chown to change the owner of the files on
/var/lib/samba/printers/WIN40/0 to root.root
- use chmod to change the permissions to the default.
