Cool Cups Printing Driver for Windows

Hey All!

I have installed CUPS and Samba( amongst other services) on my mandrake 10.0 server.

Using the Adobe Postscript printer driver I can, without any problem, print to my printer. (Windows connects to samba, samba passes to cups and cups writes to Parallel port).

Here is the trouble. I would like it so that when a windows users browses the network and right-clicks "connect" on the printer it will automatically get the drivers from the server.

So I need postscript drivers for Windows(all nice, XP needed). I need to know in what share/sharename to put these drivers and how to get windows to get them automatically.


Go Cups Go!

I never thought it would be easier to configure the Linux machine than it is to configure windows.
