I have a W2K server with Win 98 clients.
Initially clients were setup with a lexmark optra k 1220 printer which was controlled by server2, I wanted to change users to a Samsung printer which was attached to server3.
On the W98 machine I deleted the lexmark and added the samsung.
I couldn't print a test page on the new printer.
I got an error message" This printer can not be upgraded because its driver LMPCL5c.drv could not be loaded. Please reinstall the printer", I even tried reinstalling the old and new printers, but still same problem. W98 machine could not print to either of them
Any ideas

Try installing the drivers locally on the W98 machine first.  You can do this by setting the port to File and once the drivers are installed, connect it to the server again.
