Well.. We use only xerox printers in our company and the newer ones 
(Phaser 3600 and up) gave allway headaches to me when samba came into 
play, esp. the large printers like Work Centres 7xxx. No matter what 
I've tried, PS-Driver, Universal Printer Driver, or last option: ignore 
the error message, connect the printer to the admin-PC over the server, 
nothing helped. As last resort I've installed it via tcp/ip-port on the 
workstation from a script and with holp of OPSI.
Finally we moved over to AD because of these problems and a redesign of 
our Network.

Sorry, I think you're out of luck in this case
