Which driver to install?

I am accessing Windows Server 2008 using Terminal Server (on Windows 7 home if that matters).  I am trying to install a printer driver, but I don't see an OS choice for Windows Server.  My choices are:

Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)
Microsoft Windows Vista
Microsoft Windows Vista (64-bit)
Microsoft Windows XP
Microsoft Windows XP x64
Microsoft Windows 2000
Mac OS X

Does this mean that my printer isn't compatible with Windows Server?

I tried to look for a "Generic Driver" for Windows Server, but that just seems to forward to a driver installer program.

you can use the windows 7 32bit.

if its a new HP printer you can also use the universal print drivers
If everything is installed correctly, and the printers are redirected, then the printing is not done on the TS, but it is done by the client machine.

What do you mean by "the printers are redirected"?  If I have an executable running on the server machine and I chose to print on my local machine are you saying there is pipe or something similar in which the client sends window regions to the server application and the server application sends bit arrays to the client?  Does this happen through printer sharing or does this happen through Remote ?Desktop Magic?
I can see a problem here: the Deskjet is a GDI printer (where the Windows graphics engine does the work of converting the page into dots on the paper). These printers are usually very hard to impossible to use in a TS environment. It's not listed in HP's Citrix compatibility document, which is a very bad sign. You may only be able to use it as a local printer, after installing the driver from the CD.

I am closing this because I am leading into a harder question concerning permissions problems that overlaps testing of these answers.
