To install vendor supplied Windows drivers from Windows clients using cups and 
samba create a raw queue in cups for the printer, reload samba so that it is 
aware of the printer. Make sure that "use client driver" is the default value 
of "no" (testparm -sv | grep 'use client'). Then carefully follow the 
instructions in the classical print section of the howto (yes, works just 
fine for cups):

If you have the proper rights all should be fine.
