I'm getting ready to migrate my office of 50+ Windows XP machines to 
Windows 7, in a mix of 64-bit and 32-bit clients.  I've setup a new 
samba server on a separate domain to prepare and test for this 
transition.  I've gotten everything to work so far except for printing, 
and I'm at a loss on how to proceed.  It appears to me as if adding the 
printer drivers in the usual way, via cupsaddsmb will not work for the 
64-bit clients (see http://www.cups.org/articles.php?L376 and 
http://www.cups.org/str.php?L2566).  I've searched for a solution, and 
asked on IRC.

My goal is to be able to print with 64-bit Windows 7 to a samba/cups 
server, with automatic printer driver download.  If cupsaddsmb is not 
the answer, what is?
