Thanks for the link.

I can see the printer (HP Deskjet F2200) in Printers and Faxes without 
doing anything. I can send files to it too but nothing prints. The files 
I send appear in the print queue and disappear as if they have been 
spooled. I think the problem is tha I can't install a windows driver for it:

  Everything is OK until step 4
  Click File -> Server Properties
Here, everything is greyed out

So I can't do step 5:
On the Drivers Tab, Click 'Add...', then 'Next'
because 'Add. . .' is greyed out.

It's as if the Domain Administrator does not have permission to do 
anything from a client.

Any ideas where I can check?
