I have a local printer on one server called FAX, when I look it up in the registry it is using the Windows NT Fax Driver FAXDRV.DLL. when  double click on the printer in the control panel the title shows Fax Queue.  Please help, I want this same "printer" on another server! How do I get it there?  I've tried registry exports, looking things up on the net, nothing is working!!  I know this is a standard Windows 2000 driver but I cant for my life find anything like that when I add a printer! PLEASE HELP!
