That's the part I solved (partually because I cannot change any settings 
from a client XP)

Will try that tomorrow. I tried a couple things after my last post, the 
driver is 'loaded' automagically with the log-in script.
(WSHNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\Server\Xerox7328 picked from: 
http://www.tek-tips.com/faqs.cfm?fid=5798 )

WORD however is doing weird.
I cannot change the paper-size (paper-size = something 'custom', which 
happen to be the same as 'letter')

I've the feeling that if I can change the setting in the driver from a 
cient XP, that word will be able to pick up all available paper formats 

I hope I don't have to revert to RAW after all this. On the other hand 
things have to work on Wednesday...
