[Samba] Samba printer and Vista

I have set-up a couple of printers and uploaded the driver on Samba

Now Windows XP clients can add the printers and the driver is
automatically installed.

I have a problem with Vista clients, when trying to automatically
install the driver it gets and error: "Windows cannot connect to the
printer. Operation could not be completed (error 0x0003e3)"

I suspect the reason could be that my samba server advertize the
driver to be for Win2000 and WinXP.

Can I associate more than one driver to one samba printer?

Right now, I do not have Vista machine that could connect as root of
Samba server and that could do this association, I can only do that
from Unix; is that possible? It seems that rpcclient setdriver can
only associate one driver to one printer.

Best regards,
