Ugh. Maybe we should try the Samba printer driver hack. Do you have an 
inf file for your printer?

CUPS drivers for Windows?? Regarding feeding directly from CUPS in 
Windows, yeah, there is a way. Use the cups queue and install one of 
those Apple Postscript drivers for the cups queue. That way, the Windows 
boxes will generate postscript which cups can swallow and intepret.

The cups + Windows Apple postscript driver should be the simplest.

The printer driver wizard method with an inf file is a bit more 
involved, see the link below:
