urgently need explicit instructions on how to get a new Dell Vostro 64-bit windows 7 client computer to connect to and HP4200 and Canon iR3045 print servers on a 32-bit version of SBS 2003 Premium (all Service Releases installed).

On the Win 7 computer I've downloaded the 64 bit drivers from HP and Canon. I've unzipped them and have copied the folders to the SBS 32-bit server. I'm thinking I should go to the print manager on the SBS server, open each print server, go to tab "sharing", "Additional Drivers", checkmark X64 drivers and then follow whatever instructions ensue. But there are so many warnings on the internet errors regarding special files and failures.

I must get this problem solved over the weekend or else my job = catastrophy. Look forward to a veteran's help. Thanks.
