[Samba] Problems printing lanscape on SAMBA advertized printers

I'm having a problem with some model of HP printers (specifically 5Ms 
and 8100s) not printing landscape when accessed via SAMBA (version 
3.0.14a-2).   The problem is actually visible in print preview on the 
windows box.  But have the same computer print to the printer directly 
and there's no problem. I'm presuming this has something to do with the 
way SAMBA interfaces with the windows drivers. 

Drivers are installed the easy way by unzipping them on a PC, and 
letting windows actually upload the driver to the server.

I'm truly baffled and so I hope someone else has seen this problem and 
gotten through it.
