It just needs a working cups and samba install to get it working. I run
several linux print servers for windows clients, including driver installs.

The only real problem I had was right before service pack 3 came out for XP.
Some security update broke ALL my HP print drivers on the XP boxes. I fought
with it for 3 weeks, and had to create cups print driver based packages for
all the HP printers until SP3 magically fixed it. I never found out what
caused it.
