1 or 2 years ago, I was in the same situation as you know. I tried a
lot, but it simply didn't work. Nowadays I follow the route via a
windows client to add the printer drivers to the samba server.
Something like
<Right-click mousebutton><Server properties>\
<Add driver>
If you cannot follow, you better check the archives or the handbook
where this is better explained.

Met vriendelijke groeten,
With kind regards,
Mit freundlichen Gruessen,
