Server 2003 Terminal Server - Lexmark Printer mapping/driver install

I am trying to install the printer driver for a lexmark AIO on Windows 2003 Terminal Server.  It goes through the entire process until it wants the printer to connect either by USB or network.  Since the driver isn't on the server the notebook doesn't map the port for the printer so I am in a catch 22 here.. I need the driver installed to map the printer and I need the printer to install the driver.  The HP drivers allow you to skip the connection part, any help for lexmark/dell stuff?

Thanks!

Why not set a print queue on the server: Add Printer Wiz > Local printer attached to this computer > Next > Create a new port (Standard TCP/IP Port) > Next > IP Address...complete it on out. You will be given the choice to install the drivers for the print queue during this installation.

Lexmark 3550.  I can't get to just the drivers it is a stupid .exe install program.
