Vista printing on Windows 2003 Print Server

I have a Windows 2003 Server and I have all of our network printers shared from it and everything is working great. We will be adding Vista Workstations to the network soon and i am wondering what is the correct way to set the drivers up on the server.

The printers that we have are all new Ricoh copiers and Ricohs web site does not have the full Vista print driver yet, they just have what they call PCL MiniPort driver.

What should i do to set this up? Thanks!!!

In my network at work, I've been able to use the RPCS drivers on all our Ricoh printer/copiers except for a 2238 color copier.  for that one I had to use the more generic PCL driver.

So you just have the RPCS drivers shared off the 2003 server and just connect to it from Vista? Did you have to load anything on the server?

Correct - the RPCS drivers are on the 2003 server.

We didn't load anything that wasn't there for all the XP client computers.
