Have a look at http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;Q239088

You can do one of the following:

1. Ignore it :)
2. Load the print driver on the server
3. Manually map a different driver on that server to the printer, using the article above.
4. Use TSPDRW to automatically map the missing drivers - http://download.microsoft.com/download/9/f/2/9f237742-e057-4e00-a0d5-62de2ebf9fbd/tspdrw_package.exe

I generally use options 1 or 4.

Yes, you can use TSPDRW (Terminal Server Printer Driver Redirection Wizard) on your Windows 2003 Server. It doesn't replace the drivers, it just reads the event log and maps the missing drivers to a standard driver, such as a HP LaserJet 4. It's wizard driven, so its pretty easy to use.
