Canon iR 3025 installed on Server 08

I have a brand new server 08 box, enterprise even, 64-bit even...fresh install, right out of the box.

I have installed print management.  I have given my Canon iR 3025 a static IP and installed the driver.  It was included with Server 08 it seems.  I have it published in the directory.  

I need a 32-bit driver.  I've pulled down several and cannot install it.  I get a message that my driver file does not contain information for this processor or some such nonsense.

Of course, when I try to install it on my XP machines, out of the directory, there is no driver.

Any ideas?

have you downloaded the 32 bit WinXP drivers from Canon?  What process are you using to install the drivers?

I did download a 32-bit driver from canon and I'm clicking the printer, going to share, then adding a driver.  I have also tried clicking the drivers folder, right clicking and then installing the driver.  

when I browse to the driver folder, and click the inf file, that's when I get the message about the driver not being right for my processor type.
