[Samba] Vanishing options in hp printer drivers

We're using a couple of HP printers (2200, 4200, 3390) using the HP PCL
6 printer driver.

Printer drivers are installed on the samba (3.0.24) box, connecting,
driver installation and printing work OK.

Problem: using the same driver version with the printer shared by a
windows box gives some additional options like 
 - brochure printing
 - putting serveral pages on one sheet

Any Idea why those options are gone from printer settings if the printer
is sahred by a samba box and/or how to get them back?

Thanks, Martin
