XP clients fail to download a driver from a Win2003 server during Add New Printer

Windows 2003 domain server, HP LaserJet 4350

After using driver wizard from the HP supplied CD on 2003 server, XP clients are not downloading necesarry driver (from 2003) when adding a new network printer. Add New Printer (on a client side) finishes with error that drivers are missing without attempting to download. The result is same even if driver is added manually from a CD during Add New Printer.

Sharing/Additional Drivers shows 2000/XP/2003 drivers as available.

Thank you

If these are domain users, you will need to add print driver as administrator.
