Migrating print server from 2003 to 2008 and getting "printer driver is unknown error)

Were setting up a new Win 2006 x64 server to replace a 2003 box.  I'm trying to migrate the printers over to the new one using the print migration tool.  I installed the x64 drivers for all the printers and ran the migration tool, but only a handfull of them made the move.  The others came back with :

Printbrm.exe (the Printer Migration Wizard or the command-line tool) failed to restore print queue Plt3-2800. The restore process will continue, skipping this queue. Error: 0x80070705. The printer driver is unknown

Anyone know what this means or how I go about fixing it?
