I installed a Dell printer and I also installed some additional drivers so
that anyone can connect to it but when Im at a computer without the drivers
installed on it I browse for the printer and right click on it and select
connect. I get an error back saying "the server for the printer does not
have the correct print driver installed..." How do I change the print driver?

The computer that I am trying to install on is a Windows XP Pro SP2. All
workstations here are. The server is a Linux machine. The printer is a DEll
M5200 laser printer.

When I initially installed the printer drivers I did it all from my
workstation. When I go to addition drivers the installed drivers are greyed
out and I cannot do anything wiht them.
