Hi folks.

I've got a system where my WinXP (they still work well) workstations have a 
virtual printer installed on them. 

This virtual printer uses Apple Colour Laserwriter Postscript drivers to 
generate PS files which are then printed to a linux server where Samba passes 
the file to one of my scripts which then parses the file, extracts data, 
coverts the PS to PDF and then inserts the details into a database.

My problem is that on the new Win7 x86 PC's the Apple drivers are not 
available.  Can anyone point me to compatible drivers, or what I can do
