hi laurent,

i cant imagin, where this permission is set.

1. i apply the driver via apw from windows xp32 as root
2. net rpc rights list root
         Enter root's password:
3. i can was able to upload the driver for
     "HP Color LaserJet PS"

     but i cant upload
         Kyocera 5350 UPD or KX driver
     also not
         OK ES7411 PS (v1.0.0)
