In general printer drivers DO NOT require you to know a lot about driver programming.  The DDK has templates for printer drivers and you essentially "fill-in-the-blanks" and build the driver.  In this one case, the DDK documentation is pretty helpful.

You need:

1) DDK for your target version of Windows
2) Visual C++ V6.0.

Install both, go to the DDK samples folder and examine the printer driver samples.
