Windows 7 clients cannot print through a Server 2008 print server

I have several machines running Windows 7 64 bit.  When connecting to the print server (server 2008), the clients get prompted to download print drivers.  Says the drivers are not loaded.  What do I need to do so that the clients can print through the print server?

install the 64 bit drivers on the client manually and try again
Did you add the windows 7 drivers to the 2008 machine ?

At the sharing tab of the printer there's a button Additional Drivers   (and maybe you have to add windows 7 drivers there).  
Is you're 2008 32 or 64 bit?
If you have the drivers installed you also need to make sure that they have the permissions to print from the printer. You can do this through the group policy. Without permissions or allow they will not be able to print
