How to properly use the Terminal Server Printer Redirection tool

I have a server 2003 standard machine that is licensed as a Terminal Server.  I have some clients logging in that have a Canon iR-C2380-2550 class printer that is failing to redirect.  I downloaded what would be a perfectly suitable pcl 5/5e driver from Canon's website.  I installed the driver on the server (just the driver not an actual printer) and used the TSPDRW tool to try and place the driver in the NTSubsPrint.inf file to resolve the issue.  However, my driver does not show up in the list of potential substitutions.  My question is this:

What the hell is a MINI driver and what criteria do I need to meet in order to get a driver to show up in the list of possible substitutions?  If anyone has any other methods/techniques they use to cleanly and effectively enable printer redirection for rdp clients please feel free to share those also.

Step 3 should be...Try to always use the same driver on both server and remote system.
