Have you setup samba to work as a print-server 

If you have a [print$] share and on it the required driver directory 
structure, you should be able to upload drivers through the the wizzard 
(On Win7 go to \\servername, click 'open remote printers', righ-click 
somewhere, 'server settings', 'drivers', ...)
