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:
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...
