[Samba] Problem with adding printer drivers in Windows XP

Well, I'm trying to add drivers to the server through the Properties 
dialog box for my printer. Right click on the printer, left click 
Properties, Advanced tab, New Driver button type of thing. Except that 
the New Driver button is greyed out. I've checked and my user has the 
SePrintOperatorPrivilege rights assigned to him but it still does not 
work. I can write files and create directories in the 
\\nightwolf\print$\W32X86 folder with both my user and the administrator 
user. I can't make sense of the logs really, there's too much garbage in 
them to make heads or tails of anything myself. I'd be happy to send 
along a copy of the log files if someone could take a look; just let me 
know what log level and which log files to send.

I appreciate your help.
