Cannot Install driver on Server 2008 Print Cluster

I get this error when trying to install a driver onto my print cluster in server 2008, any ideas?

unable to install <driver>, Type 3 - User Mode, x86 driver. Operation could not be completed (error 0x800f0247)
1 Solution
Create a directory called C:\Temp and copy your printer driver folder to this location on your Server Core machine.

Now, Then, from the command prompt of your Server Core machine


start /w rundll32 PrintUI.dll,PrintUIEntry /ia /K /m <driver name> /h <architecture> /v 3 /f <driver inf file>"

filling in the necessary fields (driver name, architecture, and inf file) This bug has to do with problem server has using the print GUI. G/L

This isnt server core, it is the full install.  Will it still work with it?
