how use a pdf printer over lan from a windows pc


hi, i installed Mandrake for a small fileserver. I just noticed it installed three pdf printers, which is a really nice thing since i always wanted to add that to the server.
Question is, how do i access them from windows pc's over the network? When i try to add it as a networkprinter i keep getting prompted for drivers, the printersetup cannot finish.

Any ideas?
