Have you loaded the drivers onto the server or just set up the printer 
on the client and loaded the drivers there?

If you load the drivers onto the client then the client will try to talk 
to the printer slightly differently than if it pulls the drivers from 
the server, the result is something like what you describe.

The quick solution is "use client drivers = yes", the proper solution is 
to load the drivers onto the server.
