[Samba] Can I copy printer print drivers to a new server

Since I was working from home last night and couldn't really test the 
printing (the ultimate test is to get the printed page out of the 
printer), I didn't try any setdriver commands.  Tried that this morning 
and all the pieces seem to work from the copied over driver files and 
ntdrivers.tdb.  Thanks for all your assistance
